Windows 7: Vista to 7, but with an already used licence

19 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Vista to 7, but with an already used licence

Ok, so I have a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, and I installed the 64-bit version on my main computer, and the 32-bit version on my other, however, I had to use the registry workaround to activate it on both of them. My question is, would I be able to install and activate on a third computer (probably the 64-bit)using the registry workaround? I don't care if it "violates" the EULA, as long as it passes the genuine test I don't care.

I will be using all three of these computers for personal use and I don't intend on selling any of them.

OEM Licence Question
So, my friend recently acquired a MSI A6200 laptop with a Core i3 and 4GB of RAM. Also, it's second hand. It came with Windows 7 HP x86 installed and has an original Windows sticker with a product code. Can I use this code to format and install Windows 7 HP x64 or it's locked to x86? Thanks...
