A couple of years ago I got a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium preinstalled, now I am looking for a new laptop it since windows 8 just came out many of the new laptops are lacking it. So I was wondering if there was away to get a genuine copy of Windows 7 onto a brand new laptop, without having to buy another copy of it from Amazon or somewhere. If I wiped the drive in the old laptop and then either clean install Windows 7 on the new laptop or use windows system image to transfer it to the new one.
Would either of these methods leave me with a genuine copy of 7? Or of I do get a new laptop with Windows 8 am I stuck with it?
