This question already has an answer here:
If I have a Windows 7 COA Sticker on my PC... (it isnt specifically labeled Dell COA) Is it possible that I could use that same key on a totally different PC? My dell computer is outdated. I wanted to install that license on a custom PC I've built. Will that work? I know I would have to possibly call in to activate it. Any useful info would help. Thanks guys!
