  • If Windows 7 was preinstalled on the laptop by the laptop manufacturer, it cannot be transferred to a different computer.  If you installed Windows 7 using a conventional Windows 7 retail DVD and license, you can install it on a different computer.  Please note that you may have to "activate by phone" after installation is completed.
