    I have a copy of Windows 7 but I already installed it on one computer. I want my other computer to have Windows 7 but I'm not sure if you can. Is it possible to install the same copy of Windows 7 on multiple computers using the same product key or not?

    Thanks.

    No, it isn't possible if you just have a standard license. When you attempt to activate Windows 7 with the same product key, it will see that it has already been used. Activating Windows 7 requires an internet connection, or for you to phone Microsoft for an activation code.

    I just Googled you question, and this is what turned up:

    So no, isn't really possible.
    This is what I found out on one of those sites:

    Microsoft will sell you a '3 install' disk, doing exactly what it says on the tin.

    Basically you're gonna have to buy another copy of 7, (which, by the way, was my idea) or live without it. Continue running you're other OS, or install Linux. If this computer is older, or a laptop, Karmic (Koala) Xubuntu runs like a dream.

    Spend money, or run Linux... or another version of Windows...
