Hello Everyone This is a fun Thread..... LOL here is what i am planning to do,

1 take the HD out of the OLD DELL LAPTOP (small 120 Gig HD )

2 once i get the rest of my Parts... ( in a week or two ) i will assemble the NEW Backup System and use the OLD DELLS HD and install a copy of windows 7 X 64 on that OLD DELL HD ( i have one thats on a Bootable Flash drive )

3. i have a Genuine Copies of Window 7 Pro that i Got as Student in 2012 , that i have not USED...

4. i can Try to use the OEM From the OLD HD to try and Activate windows, ( as this thread says probably wont work )

4B. Try to use the KEY from the System that i sold. to see if that will Activate the new OS

5. if push come to shove just use one of the KEY that i have,

and just to make thing a little FUN here is MY MAIN SYSTEM MGADiag LOL

Thanks for Everyone's Help

Just go to Step 5. You are wasting your time with anything else.

Pantz, some of stuff you are doing is not allowed to be talked about here. Since, you claim you have other keys that I assume are legit. I recommend using those keys. That all I can say on this thread. I am unsubscribing before a put my foot into my mouth, which I may already have done.

It's nothing you said Pantz. It was your installation that proved to break the Microsoft EULA.

If you enter a valid key during the installation, there is nothing wrong.
I encourage members who learn that their installation is invalid to correct it. It sounds to me as though you are going to do just that.

Your thread topic : Transfering OS KEY to new Build has been answered, yes?
I think it has, so I'll drop out of further discussion.

It was kind of fun, wasn't it?
