I have a Win 7 Home Premium retail installer which I installed on my desktop. But my desktop crashed 2 days ago (mobo problems) and I want to install Win 7 on my laptop.
I understand that my Win 7 can only be installed in one PC at any given time so that it can be activated. I have read this post and it said there is no standard way of deactivating the installation but I am just required to format the old drive.
But I want to install Win 7 on my laptop first, then hook up my old drive to retrieve my files before I format it.
Will I be able to install Win 7 on my laptop and have it activated?
