Hello,

I am currently using windows xp professional. I am planning to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. In another 2 years, I am also planning to upgrade my system. I am planning to uninstall windows 7 on my current system and installing on the future system. (Meaning only one working copy of windows at a time.) Will microsoft consider this as piracy? Please advice

Dear Devrath,

If you purchased a single license you can install on only one computer even if you uninstall it and if you install on a different machine, Windows will paralyse it after 3 months.

To install your Win 7 on a different machine, Microsoft must receive certification that it was completely uninstall from the previous. That is possible.

I suggest you write Microsoft and ask them on how to proceed.

Here is a contact link for customer support:

Good luck

Hi Ambucias,

Thanks for the reply. I am in India and the link you provided doesn't seem to be working. How do I contact Microsoft regarding this?

Would microsoft consider my copy as pirated even if I register & activate my copy using the same name?

Devrath,

The link I have given you is for India. Look at this link:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us

As for you latest question, same name it does not matter; it's only for one computer

Good luck

Hi Guys,

It is possible to have one working copy of windows. We can uninstall and install it on another machine.

Thanks guys! Problem Solved!
