Deactivate a Dead Computer?

How can I deactivate a dead computer?

I'd like to put my copy of Windows 7 Ultimate up for sale, but the computer it was on died. I replaced it with a Windows 8 notebook, so I can't really install it on another computer just to deactivate it.

Any ideas?

You dont need to deactivate it. The only Windows 7 you can sell is a retail version that includes the COA sticker and product key.

Yup, it's the full retail version.

So, when someone buys it, all they have to do is just activate it the usual way?
