After a hard drive failure i purchased a new drive. (SSD 120Gb)
I have a genuine upgrade version of Windows 7 ultimate X64. I reinstalled the OS without putting my older version of XP on the drive first and it failed activation. An oversight on my part.
the drive did not instantly fail but over a period of weeks with failed to spin up when cold so i expected it to fail.
I created an easy transfer file. Within this file would it transfer the activation license so as to save me having to format install XP and then install 7 again?
