Uninstall Windows 7 from a computer and put it on another computer?

I am told by pre-sales Microsoft I can install Windows 7 on my current computer and if I uninstall it "correctly" (from my current computer), I can then install it on a new computer (when I am one).  Would be nice even if it came pre-installed because not all computer companies offer a Windows disk more.

In any case, when I tried with Vista, I had to call Microsoft to activate.  No one knows for sure if you can install it on different computers as long as it is installed on a computer at any time?  Can someone explain why I was worth doing this with Vista?

Basically, I'm trying to decide to get it now or wait...


Do you know what they mean when they say "correctly" uninstall?  Usually just, I format my hard drive.

Format and make sure that it is completely removed from your system. Additional resources:

When you reactivate it, in this case, I'll be able to do it myself with the same product key or I will have to call Microsoft every time I have reinstall my software?

  • How do I uninstall Illustrator from a PC and install it on another?

    Hello everyone, I have the Design Suite CS6. The license is for a single machine, and in fact all of the software have been installed and activated on a PC. But actually, I realized that I need to have Illustrator on a second computer in my office. Is it possible to uninstall it from one PC and put it on another without having a problem with activation? If so, how should I handle the license and serial number?   Thank you very much for your help

    A single user license allows you to have activated installations on 2 machines, so you don't need to uninstall, but you can if you prefer.

If it won't let you do this, make sure all the things Mozilla are closed and uninstalled.

  • How to uninstall Windows 7 from the recovery disk?

    By mistake, I installed Windows 7 on the recovery disk. I have only windows 7 installed on my Dell Inspiron. However, it is now a multi-boot, as Windows 7 is stored on the operating system and the recovery drive. How delete/uninstall Windows 7 from the recovery drive (more free space on it is exhausted). I already tried to 'Format' and 'Remove the Volume' in the disk management page, but the options are grayed out and I can't access it.

    It's probably that you managed to install on the Dell recovery disk victory because it would be too small.

    Open the recovery partition in Explorer to view the files.

  • I'm trying to uninstall a printer from my computer, but the feature uninstal fails to do so. The error message is 5004:Ox7E

    My operating system is Windows XP

    The printer is a Brother 2035

    I also tried the uninstal brother tool but it also fails to remove the software from my computer.

    I already deleted the printer, so I can't reconect, which I believe can casue a problem when you try to uninstall?

    The above mentioned error message can mean there is a problem with my system?

    Everyone knows about this problem? and they were able to find a method to uninstall/remove all files to their printer?

    Thank you very much


    This error seems to be related with InstallShield.  I did not experience myself, but see this page--> http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/installshield-error-5004-0x80070005.61658/

    I would like to start with the 'solution' down - rename the folder InstallShield/Professional.

    If all else fails, I suggest you to contact brother support and/or support Flexera Software (unfortunately, there is nothing in the Flexera KnowledgeBase on 5004 with argument 0x7e error and their 'community forum' is not functional at the moment).

    To get into Safe Mode, press F8 immediately after the restart.  If you get the Windows logo, you waited too long to start typing.  What you're looking for is white on black 'Advanced Boot Menu Options'.  When you see that, using the arrows (mouse doesn't work here) to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.

    Reboot will automatically return to normal mode.
