    I have de-commissioned an older machine that I had installed W7 on, I wish to install the W7 from this machine to another, is this possible -if so how?
    I think I have read somewhere, that once W7 is installed on a machine - it can NEVER be used on any other machine, is this correct?
    Many Thanks

    Welcome to the forums, dong. : )

    It depends on the Windows 7 version. If you have purchased a "retail copy" from a shop, you should not have any problems transferring it to another computer. If you run into a problem activating it, call the Microsoft activation line:

    Start -> Slui 4

    follow the instructions to activate it with a special code that you type in.
