Hey guys. Im building a new computer. I dont feel like buying a brand new OS. I decided that im going to put my hard drive in my new build and install windows 7 on it. Is this illegal? Could this migration be possible?
If you have installed Win 7 on your current HDD, and you want install the same disk on your new rig, yes is legal IF THE WIN 7 IS LEGAL, but, bear in mind that you need re-install the windows, 'cause the driver of your current PC al new PC aren't the same.
Clarification required on your intention.
Are you saying that you have XP/Vista on the old drive and an upgrade copy of W7 which you want to use on the new build, using the version on the hdd to upgrade from?
Sorry i didnt make myself clear. What im possibly going to do for my new build is taking off win 7 from my old computer and call microsoft and ask them if i can do the transfer. I know it is possible from what ive heard so it should be a piece of cake;)
