I don't need Windows and I am buying a new laptop. New laptop (Lenovo L530) includes OEM Windows 7 PRO license and there is nothing I can do to avoid buying the OS. Since, my family can use Windows on another computer, is it possible to transfer the license there? The difference between other usual OEM transfer cases is that I will never boot new laptop with the Windows OS (I will format it immediately).
My more specific questions: (1) will the new Windows 7 PRO OS be pre-activated when I will receive my new laptop? (2) Will the new OS be tied to the new laptop in the factory and not during activation / installation process and there is nothing I can do?
I tried researching this, but nothing helps. I only found that one can use manual activation method by phone to convince the operator you have broken your laptop and need an OS license transfer.
