I upgraded to Win 8 pro win 7 HP (System Generator cd) & win vista HP (acer laptop). I can now use these keys on a new PC?

Windows 7 HP was used on my custom PC. It's from a CD system manufacturer that I bought at the store builder, and I still have the CD.
The windows vista HP computer come with my acer laptop. No CD of the OS.
Now that I've upgraded these two devices for windows 8 pro can each with new product keys, I now use one of the two buttons above on another, new PC? in particular the Windows 7 HP.
Thank you.

    Since you posted your product key on a public web site, it has now
    almost certainly already been copied and used by hackers all over the
    world. This means that Microsoft disables this button so it can't be
    more used.
     
    Please, in the future, never publish your key like this.
     
    But leaving that aside for the moment, to answer your question, if
    It is a key to the retail sale, Yes, you can use it on another computer. If it's a
    OEM key, no you can't.

  • Can I use a key to upgrade Windows 7 32 - bit for the upgrade to Vista 64 - bit, 7 64-bit, with a 64-bit upgrade disc?

    It's a bit complicated, but I appreciate all help.

    I have the following:
    1. access to a genuine copy of Windows Vista 64-bit (regardless of the version I want) through IEEE Computer Society.
    2. a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit upgrade disc purchased through a program of student software in 2010. Shortly after using the disk and the key, the laptop I was using died due to hardware problems.
    3. a drive to upgrade Windows 7 Professional 32 - bit bought via the same pattern of student software, including an unused key.
    Student software system only allows users to buy a copy of each version, so I can't buy it simply another copy of the 64-bit version.
    I wonder if it is possible to use the key of the 32-bit version with the version 64-bit upgrade disk to upgrade a 64 bit Windows Vista installation to Windows 7? If this is not the case, unfortunately, I'll be stuck with Vista.

  • want to download win vista business 64 bit and we my 32-bit key, where could I find

    switch from 32-bit to 64-bit for windows vista business oem

    The product key on the label of COA affixed to your computer (in the battery on some laptops) is the same for 32-bit and 64-bit.  However, there is no place to download a Vista Business .iso file.  You can contact the manufacturer of your computer for help, but OEMS are not required to provide copies of 32-bit and 64-bit of their recovery software.  Once a customer chooses one or the other platform is usually all that he has the right to.  Check the manufacturer's Web site to see if the recovery software can be ordered both ways.  If this isn't the case, you may be stuck.

  • Satellite Pro A100 - no restore CD - can I use the key to Toshiba?

    Hi all

    Can I get Windows xp pro eng cd somewhere and install it on my laptop with my cd key?

    Thanks for your help

    Hello

    The serial key you found at the bottom of the device belongs to the Windows OS preinstalled Toshiba and touches it s an OEM that will NOT work with the other disks in Windows XP.

    This means that if you want to install Windows XP on this notebook then you buy the Toshiba recovery disc again the ASP in your country or you will take an original Microsoft Win XP disc and will use this disk and the key that belongs to this Win XP OS.

    You have these two options.

  • Upgrading RAM on Satellite Pro SP6100

    I want to improve my RAM on my Satellite Pro SP6100. Now, I have 256 MB and in the manual it s recommended to upgrade with 128 or 256 MB. One of my friends updated his SP6100 with 256 MB. But what I m wondering if I can improve it with 512 MB. I will use the same kind o RAM he bought but 512 MB instead. It works perfectly for him and he bought a 256 MB SODIMM 200pin PC2100 DDR - RAM.

    I was counting on the 512 MB SODIMM 200pin PC2100 DDR - RAM purchase.

    Is it OK to do this same s if not mentioned in the manual?

    Hello Daniel

    Yes you can update this unit with a module of 512 MB memory.
    As far as I know this unit has 2 memory slots, and it is possible to upgrade to max 1024 MB (2x512MB).
    In addition you can also use these modules:

    PC2100 128 MB (PA3126U - 1 M 12)
    PC2100 256 MB (PA3127U - 1 M 25)

  • Can I upgrade OLD computers XP Pro 32-bit to W7 Pro and later move the license to a new computer and 64-bit?

    I have a gob of old machines (5 years and more) running XP Pro 32-bit.  I don't want to buy new hardware when the XP support ends, so I'd just like the upgrade to windows 7 pro (probably 32 bit for some of them).  I think many of my computers will die in the next 12 to 18 months.  I would like to move the Windows 7 Pro license on new machines AND change to 64-bit at the same time without having to buy a new license of W7.

    Can someone tell me if this is possible?  Most of the machines will be 2013 Office installed.

    Thank you

    Wayne

    The key will activate one or the other (32-bit or 64-bit), but not at the same time. You get 2 DVD (s) with a version of "Retail" of Windows 7, but only 1 product key. If you want to use that key on your new machine, you must first uninstall Windows machine which has the 32-bit version of Windows installed.

    After that, you will need enable the new machine (64-bit) by phone from your key was already used to activate the PC 32 Bit.

    Also be aware that an 'Upgrade' of Windows 7 version requires that a previous version of Windows is installed and enabled. So if your new machine does not come with an earlier version of Windows pre-installed, you should consider the purchase of a 'Full' (not an ' Upgrade') of Windows 7 version.
