You would probably have to ask Microsoft, and it may depend on which version you have. (Full license or OEM) I know on the OEM, it is tied to the motherboard somehow. Guess that info gets transmitted to Microsoft during part of the install. I'm not sure how the full license works, but seems there may be a way to transfer it to a different computer. Not sure if there has to be some way to prove the original MB is not being used anymore or not. If it allowed, the install would not be hard to do. You would have to wipe the hard drive clean, then start over as a new install. You would lose everything you might have on the computer, so if there are any programs that came with the computer you want, you would have to copy them to another hard drive. That part I would have to do some research on how to do. I'm sure there are tutorials on the net on how to accomplish this. Jim.
