  • Assuming a retail or volume key this shouldn't be a problem. Simply install OS on new target and activate. Remove OS from old one. If an OEM key they generally die with the hardware but ask the OEM to confirm.

    Possibly, assuming a retail or volume key simply install OS on new target and activate. Remove OS from old one. If an OEM key they are generally tied to the specific hardware but ask the OEM to confirm as they're bound under contract with microsoft to provide the support.
