Activating license key of Windows 8 on another laptop

2016-07-04, 13:09 PM

I bought a Lenovo laptop few years ago that came with Windows 8. I'm planning on buying another laptop but it comes without a Windows OS. Can I use my Windows 8 from my old Lenovo laptop and activate the license key to the new one?

 

Do I have to unistall Windows 8 so I can activate on the new one? Or because it's embedded on the bios I can't use it on another laptop even if I uninstall it?

Solved! See the solution

You can't use it. You need a retail license key.
