so i am biulding my own custom rig. I will want to run win7 as a virtual machine in linux. I want my win7 to be transferable so that i could plug my harddive into a different motherboard and it still works (allowing me option to change or upgrade mobo later if need be (if this would be even relevant on win7 as a guest OS))
i dont want to buy a liscense just to find it dosnt do what i want or need so to someone who knows what im talking about could i be provided a specific link to say a newegg page so i know exactly what sort of liscense to look for?
You must use a retail version if you want to be able to reinstall it on other machines or move the VM. if you use an OEM license you can only reinstall it on the same machine, even in a VM. doing otherwise is illegal.
