    ok so i bough a laptop wile back with windows vista and i just recived the dell windows 7 update disk since i was entitled to a free upgrade.

    the dell laptop had 2.1 slic table in bios so i just installed windows 7 ultimate with regular dell slp key.

    now i have the express dvd with a key they send me.
    is there a way i can install this on a different machine and activated.
    if yes: is there a way i can do a clean install with and activate with update key?

    I think a clean install will reject the upgrade key but yes you can use this disk to upgrade a windows vista machine and have no activation problems but I don't think a clean install is possible for the upgrade key...

    Dell windows 7 upgrade

    Yes you can i have several of these and ive installed and sold several of them. Dont ask me how i got them but yes i have alot!

    Do a full/custom install and activate online on any brand machine.

    You are required to anyways if your upgrading xp.

    I havent tried upgrading vista to w7 on non dell machines.

    But yes the upgrade dvd from dell are as good as the dvd's you buy at bestbuy.
