    Read the whole post before answering as I put some assumptions.

    If I upgrade a computer from windows 7 to 8, Does the windows 7 license become available for use again?

    The license on the computer is FULL-BOX-RETAIL windows 7 (not oem) , and the license I am upgrading to is FULL-BOX-REATIL windows 8(not oem).

    May I now use my windows 7 on a different system?

    No for OEM keys...Yes for retail keys.

    Yes...as long as it's a retail key.
