Hello, I have a hp pc with vista 64 ultimate. It crashed I believe from malware. The recovery disk suggested this was not the same pc and I'm a crook. I did change hd and a long time ago the MB due to video failure, but I've used recovery since then a couple times. This time I did disconnect the MB battery. HP support was glad to sell me a new one since my $2000 duo core 2 was obsolete. Funny you still can get duo core 2's. With much regret I bought a win 7 os and Wow the pc does work with no real issues. On the outside chance it fails after I activate and I can someway prove this, can win 7 be installed in new pc? Thanks in advance

If you bought a full retail, or retail upgrade version of Windows 7, you can transfer it to another PC as long as you have uninstalled the software from your current one.
If you bought an OEM version of W7, you will not be able to transfer it to another PC.
