Here is my problem. I have a good HDD with all my installed programs that work with Windows 7, my computer crapped so I had to canabilize my computer to salvage what I could. ReInstall Windows 7
Obvisouly a previous installation of windows will NOT play nice with a different motherboard, I get the unholy Blue Screen of Death and then suicide (restart). I reinstalled Windows 7 on to another harddrive and contacted Microsoft for product key assistance. Software and Licenses
My heartache is not only having to reinstall every bit of software that I own; my biggest problem are the licenseing issues with the serial numbers that have to be activated online....or DEACTIVATED prior to screwing up your computer. Virtual Speculation
I do know there are programs out there that will emulate windows. Virtual Box
is a popular program that lets you emulate any OS on pretty much any other OS. *for those who dont know what I am talking about, good bye * At this point I am stumped because most of these programs use ISO versions of Windows....I need to emulate my specific version of windows straight from the HDD so that I can go back and back up or at least DEACTIVATE what I can.
Im trying to be honest and stay within the law here. I paid hundreds of dollars for these programs, I want them back.
