If all of your keys have been used, then you will need to purchase a new one from MS...

1) A single win7 key gives you the license to install only on a single PC. So you are violating the EULA the moment you try to use one key on multiple machines. Also, retail licenses (the kind you buy from a store in a box with a dvd key) are freely transferrable as long as you use it only on ONE computer at a given time. But if you switch hardware frequently, the online activation servers will not like it and fail you. In that case you need to call MS and do a phone activation.

Activate Windows 7 by Phone

2) If you need to run win7 on multiple computers, you can buy a 3 user pack for $150 if you are a end user or contact MS for an enterprise license if you are a network admin.

3) What is this about cracks? Thats what your parents taught you?

Then decide on which computer you are going to use and stick with that... why the need for all of these other computers...

So you're taking one hard drive and moving it among multiple computers? First of all, that's asking for system problems unless the hardware is 100% the same among all the computers. Second, you can't do what you're asking legally unless you purchase a license for each and every computer you are putting the drive into.

So, I just got silently disappointed today at school. In our geometry class, I was asked the question by my teacher: True or false, all chords of a circle contain exactly 2 points. So, I answered: false. My reason (I didn't point this out): Well, the center of a circle is a part of the circle,...
