    I am building 2 computers exactly the same.
    I have purchased 2 copies of Windows 7 pro

    I have installed one copy Windows 7 Pro and all of my programs and data files on the first computer and activated it.

    After I get the second computer built I would like to avoid re-installing everything on the second computer.
    Somewhere I saw where I could change the Product Key Code.

    My question is:
    Can I simply put a copy of the hard drive from the first computer into the second computer, then change the product key code to that of my second copy windows 7 pro so that I can activate it too.

    Thanks, awbarnett
