    deactivate?


    I have been trying to resurect a Dell XPS1340 that suffers from lockups. I successfully installed Win8 Pro on an SSD on that laptop. Now, I am tired of messing with it and want to pull the SSD and install it in another machine with the Windows 8. So, how do I move my license off the laptop I am about to trash? I figure there is also a chance that it will carry over since I am using the same hard drive...
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Hello Steevo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could just do a clean install with your Windows 8 on the other computer to do so.
