  1. You probably cannot "just use your hard drive from current computer," but is the current computer a name brand like Dell or HP, or whatever? If so, you need a new copy of Windows. Also, if your old computer was a personal build with an OEM Windows version you need a new copy.

    But if your old build had a retail Windows 7 install, you can transfer that Windows 7 version to a different computer by doing a clean install.
