Windows 7 Operating system disks

I have a genuine copy of Win 7 64bit and 32 bit operating system disks complete with code and COA sticker. The 64 bit os was used on my PC which has now been updated with a new 64 bit os. No doubt this info was transmitted to Microsoft, and the old code hopefully deleted from that computer. My question is, can I sell those disks now, please?

Not if you used an 'upgrade' version of the new OS. If you bought a retail version of your new OS and formatted the drive and your Win7 was a retail version, then yes.

Thanks for reply. No, its not an upgrade or OEM. The package contains two disks 32 and 64 bit and was purchased from PC World a few years ago, so its a retail version. AB68

"PC which has now been updated with a new 64 bit os"

are you saying the new 64bit os is also a full retail (or a full oem) and not an Upgrade version that relies on previous W7 being installed?

Yes a clean install on a new ssd disk

PS to earlier post. Yes a clean install with a different win 7 disk

If both OSs are retail with different keys then I see no problem.
