Moving Win 7 x64 Pro from MSDN License

I graduated college a year and a half ago and with my degree program I had access to the MSDN. I don't know if this still exists, but I was able to attain licenses for much of Microsoft software, excluding Office...

When Windows 7 came out I got it through MSDN and ran a fresh install of it over my laptop's WinXP.

Now, my laptop's CPU fan is dead and the laptop only operate for a few minutes before overheating, so basically this license is sitting on an unusable piece of hardware. I would like to move the license for Windows 7 Pro x64 from the defunct laptop to my new desktop pc.

I have tried using external fans to try to cool the laptop, but it's old and still does not manage the heat well; I don't want to use the laptop anymore.

Firstly, is it possible to move these licenses from MSDN, or are they like OEM licenses?

Secondly, how do I transfer the license?

Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. Hi :)

    As you are no longer on MSDN, you know perfectly well what you are asking is illegal ,and we are not allowed to answer this sort of question on here...

    All the best Brett :)
  3. I'm not attempting anything illegal.
    MSDN gives perpetual usage rights on this software. Therefore, the end user can continue to use the software (but cannot update).
