Hi, I have reinstalled w7, because I was getting tired of the many issues/ problems with w8. I bought the w8 pro upgrade edition. Would it be possible to upgrade another windows OS with this used copy Thanks

As long as it was not an OEM version and you have removed it from the original installation then you can install it on another PC. If there is an issue with Activation then a call to Microsoft will sort it out.

As hub_tor says provided it is not an OEM copy it is yours to sell on if you wish.

Hi, I don't believe it's the OEM version . I bought it from john Lewis for £50 . It doesn't state OEM on the box ,so I assume it is ? Thanks

Hi iqs, Probably not as if you bought it for £50 it's probably or almost certainly an upgrade version of Win8 and not the full clean install version.
