Welcome riojanitoperez!

Simple answer is NO, not legal to do.

The "upgrade W7" means you stop using Vista when you replace Vista with W7.

However, the world is full of not honest people who will use the "upgrade" anyway. Please do not ask Windows Seven Forums how to not be honest.

You said you bought Vista 64 bit. How did you buy the upgrade W7? Is it just to upgrade the Vista you bought, or is it a retail upgrade?

We are happy to help you be honest!

We're sorry for the misunderstanding, no one meant to imply that you were not honorable and that you always do the correct thing.

¡Hola Riojanito Perez!
¡Bienvenido al foro!

Estuve tratando de interpretar lo que quisiste decir en inglés y quisiera ver si entendí bien. Corregime si me equivoco:
Decís de que cuando se compró la computadora de tu hermana vino con Windows Vista de 64 bits preinstalado con la posibilidad de actualizar a Windows 7 y vos quisieras saber si podés dejar Windows Vista en el equipo de tu hermana y vos instalarte su Windows 7 original en tu máquina.
Si es éso lo que querés hacer, puedo decirte que no estoy seguro, pero me parece que no. O sea, ésa versión de Windows 7 es en realidad para instalar legalmente en la máquina de tu hermana, no en otro equipo, pero... no estoy seguro.
Mejor esperemos a ver qué dicen los expertos compañeros de éste foro.

¡Suerte!

Hi Riojanito Perez!
Welcome to the forum!

I was trying to figure out want you intended to say in english and I want to know if I've understood. Correct me if I'm wrong:
You say that when you bought your sister's computer it comes with Windows Vista 64 bits preinstalled with the possibility to upgrade to Windows 7 and you want to know if you can leave Windows Vista in your sister's computer and install her original Windows 7 in your computer.
If it is what you want, I can say that I'm not sure, but I think not. I mean, that version of Windows 7 is intended to be installed in your sister's computer legally, not in other computer, but... I'm not sure.
Let's wait what will say our expert companions from this forum.

Good luck!

Thank you so much, Gatosoft! It is very nice of you to communicate in Spanish for us!

I asked riojanitoperez how the W7 upgrade was purchased because I bought 7 Home Premium upgrade in a Green retail box. If he also has the Retail upgrade, he can install the W7 Release Candidate (given to the public at no charge) on his computer and upgrade this OS (Operating System) with the Retail W7 upgrade, then use the Vista OS on his sister's computer. I would be happy to help do this.

What is not clear is what you suggested: whether the software is from a name brand computer maker and is only supposed to be used on that name brand computer. We can give riojanitoperez a better answer to his question if we can learn more about the software he purchased. And we are happy to help if we can.

riojanitoperez;

I did not mean to say you are not honest. Your words say you are a very honest person. I did want you to know that we here at Windows Seven Forums are also honest people. We are happy to help if we can!

Warm regards!
