Re install WHS 2011 on another PC

    Question

  • Currently own WHS 2011 DVD with valid license. I want to give it to someone to use but it was previously installed on a PC which I own but the PC will no longer boot. If this person tries to install it on his PC and enters the software key will it validate? Thanks

  • hi,
    yes, if your own pc which is installed WHS 2011 not boot, you can install WHS 2011 in another pc and activate it . If he can not activate he can try to contact Microsoft Licensing Activation Centers.
