Mother Brd. sent to be fixed. Can I install Win.7 "Ultimate" on Laptop

So My Asus Motherboard is being sent off for warranty repair and i have a "paid" CD copy of Win.7 Ultimate. I have it installed on my Motherboard but was wondering? Can I also install on my laptop that is currently running Win7 Premium?

Not if you want to start up Ultimate when the mobo comes back. You can have each license on only one machine at a time.

Most users don't need the few extra expensive features in Ultimate. Compare Windows 7 Editions - Windows 7 Forum
