Providing the laptop is powerful enough , and you have backed EVERYTHING up , then yes it will work , I have an HP supplied disk running on my Fujitsu Siemens , but I recommend doing a clean install rather than an upgrade ( the " upgrade disk " should actually be all versions in full ) , go to the HP website and download as many Vista drivers as possible for your laptop and burn them to disc before attempting the install , you'll probably need them , Good Luck !

It won't activate if you've already installed it and activated it on the other laptop.
