I have a gaming pc i built but forgot to buy an os. I have a backup disk windows 7 64 bit but I have used it on a laptop which screen has broken down. Can i reuse the disk on my desktop? Could I get caught or will it not work? The easiest way would be to install using the disk I already have and renew the liscence on it using anytime upgrade would that be possible? Thx!

It will be fine but it may not activate, you may have to call MS for activation, if you have a genuine copy it won't be a problem.

If your copy came with the laptop it will be OEM and not transferable. If it is a retail copy and you have retired the laptop it will probably work. You may have to call Microsoft during activation to explain the situation.
