The computer it is currently installed on doesn't work anymore. (I couldn't fit that in the title. I know that retail licenses only permit for the copy of Windows 7 to be activated/genuine on one computer.)
I have a retail copy of Windows 7. It was used to upgrade a laptop from Windows XP to Windows 7. I still have that laptop. That laptop, however, is broken (motherboard problem). I'm aware that there is a way to deactivate Windows 7 via cmd, but I can't do that on a computer that can't turn on. Is there a way to use this retail copy of Windows 7 on my new computer without deactivating it on the old one? Or am I screwed, and need to buy a new copy?
