I loaded Windows 7 on a laptop and did not activate it. I was wondering if I can install it on a PC instead the laptop because it was not activated?

btw, you can install it on another computer since its not activated yet. You should, however, uninstall it from the computer its not activated on to ensure you have not violated the eula.
