Win 7 OS; Two Questions

I have two questions:

1. I currently have a functioning laptop with Win 7 64Bit. I also have a complete set of recovery discs as well as a system repair disc.

If I were to obtain another laptop could I use my discs and install my current Win 7 on the new laptop?

If so, then I could install a backup cloned HDD in the new laptop and have everything already set up as I prefer without customizing and installing all my software again.

This might also allow me to buy a laptop with Win 8 and replace it with my Win 7.

2. I have cloned my SSD onto an HDD using EaseToDo sotware. Can that HDD be used in another computer?

Hi,

you need the full installation disk. Those disks you have will get you out of trouble but unless you have a proper bone fide installation disk you won't be able to install win 7 on a different system.
