Depends on the "version" of each OS.

If you have the "Retail" version of each OS, then YES.

If you have the "OEM" version of each OS, then NO.

As far as transferring, nope. You have to re-install the OS and Programs on each PC, only if the OS versions are retail.

With so many differences between the two PC's, just swapping hard drives wouldn't work, as the drivers would "freak out" when booted up in a different machine. It may even violate the EULA of Microsoft, and require re-activation.

What are you running on Windows XP? Maybe they can run in Windows 7, or Windows 7 compatibility mode, or Windows XP mode in Windows 7. Can you try running them on the Windows 7 PC, and then you could just upgrade XP->7.
