    Default Is it possible to install Windows 8 on another computer?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to install Windows 8 on another computer? I have upgraded to Windows 8 Pro and I would like to change to another computer. So can I install my windows 8 on this new computer? I have the product key.

    Thanks for any suggestion!

    Allow me to explain & answer you...

    1 Windows 8 (Upgrade) = 1 license = 1 install = 1 machine.

    So, yes, if you change machines, not add a machine. Be prepared, should be ok, but, may well mean a call to MS.

    You will have to have your Windows 7 (or whatever) on the 'other' machine... has to upgrade from something.

    Will have to be removed from the 1st machine before going on the 2nd.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    You also will have a problem unless you burned a DVD or Flash on the original installation. You will have to have the DVD to allow easy installation on the second PC, and as Drew has stated you must remove Win 8 from the original PC. As Drew states you will most likely have to call MS with the activation problems you are likely to have.
