Is win7 Locket by Geographic location of purchase?


Senior Member
I remember with XP on my laptop i purchased in England where i live, however spent a few months abroad for work reasons & got a notice from Microsoft stating my OS was not Genuine & the key as been blocked because its not for the Geographic location i was using it in & it took some hours on the phone to explain things & have it un locked.

With windows 7 Ultimate will i be limited by location also? As i have 3 laptops with Win7 Ultimate on them purchased within the UK but will be going to the USA for 7 months with all 3 Laptops so i don't want to have the same problems as i did with xp.
