Hello,
I just purchased a laptop with an OS (Windows 7 Professional) already installed. My desktop runs Windows 7 Ultimate, and has all the programs I use installed. I'd prefer not having to reinstall all these programs on my laptop, how do I go about doing this? Can I just make and iso of my desktop C drive, open that on the laptop and install? How does that work if it already has an OS already installed like I said?

Also, I built my desktop. It's running an asus P9x79. The laptop is a dell precision m6600... different driver right? What do I do about that?

Thanks,
Nathan

The only legal way of doing this would be to use something like VNC or Remote Desktop to run the programs on the desktop via the laptop. Otherwise you run into licensing issues and other things that are against the rules to discuss here.

Unfortunately with most software in order to run it on more than one system you need to purchase a copy of the software for each device or uninstall it from each device each time you install it on the other device (since the license is only legal if installed on just one device at a time )
