I have 7 boxes of 7 ultimate here at work. We dont use our PCs much anymore for various reasons. A number of them have failed and simply been left to the broken computer room, along with some Macs also!
I have one PC that Im getting back up and running and I'd like to upgrade it from XP doing a clean install of 7.
All of my 7 boxes have been opened, but our notes/ documentation don't show which have actually been installed.
Before going through the hassle of installing and then finding out the key has been used, can I check some other way?
Is there a way to install one of these assuming that it is no longer being used on a dead PC?
At what point in the install will I enter the key, I dont recall. Can I find out right away if I start an install?
