    It's Impossible since different hardware.

    How about upgrading RAM, add more HDDs or something like that? I've never in these situations.

    What I have thought more about, given the Windows 8 KMS Host situation, is if someone can make a Windows 7/8 VM, install ProPlus+VisioPro+ProjectPro 2013 permanently activated, create a VM cut to the bare bones, and us use them remotely.

    Think of VMware Unity, or other means to access remote apps as if they are local (MS RemoteApp??). There has to be a way to do that.
