Windows 7: Win 7 - how does it work if you want to sell Family box?

Win 7 - how does it work if you want to sell Family box?

First off I'm not trying to sell it here, just have a question about how the license stuff works.

I bought the Windows 7 Home Premium family pack upgrade box with the 3 licenses. I upgraded one computer with Win 7, but I've decided to sell my PC altogether ( it was for audio but I've been using Macs more and more lately). I've formatted again and put windows XP back on it. And I'd like to sell my Win 7 retail box separately. How do the licenses work? Is one of the three "gone" even though I have since formatted over it and am no longer using it? and the other question is, are Windows boxes sellable at all or does the license agreement forbid it?

Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (Technet)

From a strictly technical standpoint, all three licenses will be perfectly usable. The one that has been previously used *might* require a simple 6 minute phone call to Microsoft, but probably not. As far as the legality of selling the product, you should consult the EULA that came with it or contact Microsoft directly.
