    I have an older computer running full version Win7 pro and I am going to build a new computer and start out with the same Win7 before going to Win10 at some point. Can I have both computers running the same Win7 just long enough to use a transfer cable and migrate the files I need? Thanks Ivan

    Well you don't need to actually activate windows straight away so it might work but let others comment first before going ahead.

    Yeah, just install without activating you have 30 days to activate.
