Windows 7: BU/Recovery disk transfer to another sys?

BU/Recovery disk transfer to another sys?

I succeeded in destroying my Dell laptop ... left on the gate of my pickup...don't even ask
I am looking at maybe building a system as laptops and Tom don't work well together.
Question is - if I build a system will I be able to use my recovery disks with the OS on them and transfer to the new system?
The system was Windows 7 - 64 bit.

If not it may squelch that idea from cost basis as Windows 7 is just more $$$
Thanks for any info

Hello TTerust, welcome to Seven Forums!


Afraid not mate, the lappy OS/disks are forever tied to the lappy and can't be moved at all.
