Deactivate Oem Windows To Transfer To New Computer
Dec 21, 2009
I have a laptop which came with Vista 32bit 2 years ago. I have purchased and installed an OEM Windows 7 but the computer can't seem to handle it (only 1 gig ram). I'd like to revert back to Vista installation that is partitioned on the hard drive because I'm convinced it will be faster.
My question is can I un-mate that new Windows 7 installation from this computer so I can use it on one of my other PCs? When it was installed I think I chose automatic activation. Am I screwed out of $120 now with two Windows installations mated to the same computer?
If I reformat and revert to Vista on the laptop, will the Windows 7 installation install itself on another pc with no issues?
I have a original Windows 7 ultimate single user DVD and it is activated in a PC. Now I bought a new PC with upgraded components and don't want to run that original copy of windows 7 to the old PC. So is it possible to deactivate the windows 7 from the old PC and to activate in my new PC?
So, I want to deactivate Windows 7 on my old PC. Then install Windows 7 on my new PC and activate it with the same serial key..The person buying my old PC can still boot up and see it's working - he will just get some message that Windows isn't activated.
My older computer is bad and quit working. Repairman says it is not worth repairing. It has windows 7 on it and I have the windows 7 disc and the coa# number off the old computer. I have a newer computer, with windows xp on it. Can I call Microsoft and give them the serial # of my old computer and have it voided and use the same coa# and install it on my newer computer.?
first off i have/had a Dell xps 710, and it originally came with vista, but my old old, hdd crashed, and i bought a new hdd, along with a new Windows 7 64bit oem version approximatly 5-6 months ago, installed it and everything was on the money!!
now this is where i run into my problem, now my motherboard has failed on me, and im in the process of building a new computer from scratch.. new everything except my hardrive(since its brand new 5-6 months ago), and video card...
how would i take my hard drive with Windows 7 64 bit oem version installed on it and use it on my new setup.. i really dont wanna buy another Windows 7 when i literally just bought it.. i read on here that somone posted doing it through "sysprep", but i cant do the first few steps since my mobo is shot... before i make this post anymore confusing this is my situation what should/could i do to make this work using my hdd with Windows 7 already on it along with my 4000+ audio files any thing else on the hard drive i could care less about...
p.s not sure if this is 100% accurate i have not read into it, but i hear Windows 7 unlike other win versions are now bound to mobo once installed.. if this is the case am i sh!t out of luck, or are their ways around it?
I purchased a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium Edition which included both the 32 bit and 64 bit discs. I am currently using the 32 bit version on my computer. I am considering using the Update Anytime online to upgrade to Windows Pro. In the future, if I build a new computer, can I use the 64 bit disc for install, or am I limited to the 32 bit, since I have already used it? If I can use the 64 bit version, can I still use the key provided for the upgrade to Windows Pro for my old computer? I don't want to upgrade my old computer to Windows Pro edition if I can't transfer it to a 64 bit version I would need for a new computer. Would the correct sequence be to install the 64 bit Home Premium edition to the new computer, then use the key provided by Microsoft for the Pro version update given to me on the 32 bit update?
i HAVE TO GET THE INFORMATION ROM MY OLD COMPUTER TO A "CLEAN' USED COMPUTER. IT HAS BEEN SETUP FOR WINDOWS 7. bECAUSE OF MY WIFES SURGERIES AND THE UPCOMING ONE, WE HAVE TO DO IT OURSELVES. I HAVE A ETHERNET CABLE TO GO FRON COMPUTER TO COMPUTER, BUT THATS IT. I WAS HOPING TO PRINT OUT THE DIRECTIONS AND DO IT MYSELF.
I'm trying to use Easy Transfer to transfer the files & settings from my old Vista 32 bit laptop to a new Windows 7 64 bit laptop via a network. I've loaded WET onto my old machine and followed the instructions but when I enter the transfer key I get the message: WET can't connect to your other computer - to complete the connection , you might need to install the latest version of WET...My McAfee network map on my new laptop shows my old PC as being connected and online.
Would like to get general thoughts on the best way to transfer programs from old computer to my new 8-core Windows Pro 64-bit(new install) computer. One of my areas that I'm concerned with is that several of the programs I'm wanting to transfer were purchased over the internet & downloaded with no physical media involved. Otherwise, I would just do the install via the install cd's
Well as you know kids play on the computer and so, my partition from which windows 7 boots got formated and cleaned out however there is another computer that is the exact same as that one, is there any way I can extract the partition from that computer and turn it into an ISO place it on a bootable USB disk and boot from it?
Have upgraded to win 7 home from vista on a laptop. I copied the old vista installation to an external hard drive, with a linux pen drive so was wonder if there was a way to do a transfer from the external hard drive to the new windows install
I am trying to transfer my entire user file onto an external hardrive. As soon as a drag and drop it over "external E" a window pops up that sais "this cannot happen because ntuser.dat is open in system." I have tried checking processes in the task manager but cannot find ntuser.dat in there. How I can sort it out.
if I can temporaily deactivate in a LAPTOP the function keys (F1, F2 and so on, normally dedicated to functions like dimming, changing volume...), so I can use them for gaming? some games need that keys, but I cannot use them because they do something else...
When I plug in my headphones I can still hear sound coming from my computer, I checked and found out that it is actually coming from my computer's subwoofer, the only way to disable it is to actually lower the volume down to 0, even using mute will not turn off the subwoofer and will still play at the volume it is left at. I have tried searching for what could cause the problem, trying every possible combination of sound drivers that could be the source of the issue but I cant find the solution, does anyone know what could be happening? Windows has no information on these things and it seems to be something unique since I cant find a similar problem on google.
I have installed Windows 7 with upgrade media and activated with the supplied key. Unfortunately, this computer will not last much longer, and I will be replacing soon. Is it possible for me to deactivate my product key so I can install it on my replacement, or am I just out of a lot of money?
I wish to move email messages from one Windows 7 computer to another using easy transfer. Can someone tell me exactly what I need to tick to do this? The 'new' computer already has Windows Live Mail in use.
My lappy is dying a certain death and I want to remove the Windows 7 Home Premium OS from it and install it on a new desk top that I am building. Can this be accomplished? I really don't want to spend the $100 for an OEM version when I don't need to.
I'm looking for a solution for stopping the Network Type PoPup which appears after changing the network (eg. new UMTS network etc.)I found this how-to: Unidentified Networks - Set as Private or Public which automatically defines an undefined Network as punlic or private. This is a fisrt step but unfortunatelly the Popup still appears.I need this for unattened systems that does not allow user interaction and block my network for this system.
Each time I put the PC on, I can't use Internet before I deactive then reactive the network card. When it's run fine, I have a domestic network but when I start the Pc I have two networks, the domestic one and a new public one.
As soon as I desactive - reactive the network card, the public network desappear and all is ok as long as the PC stay on..

How can I transfer music from my laptop to my PS3. I've already tried a flash drive but the PS3 doesn't recognize it because it is an encrypted flash drive. I also can't use a network to do it because all I have is one ethernet cable for both my computer and PS3.
