bad two years for computers for me but here is what happened. i bought an oem win7 for a newly build desktop
the desktop later ran into problems and i had to replace a few parts that whole process took over 3 months. while
that was going on my laptop hard drive failed and i had to replace it >_<. so i was kind of in a state of emergency
because i was computer-less and i am a full time student graduating in a year or so. finally got my desktop fixed and
everything was just the way i left it.

yesterday it says some hardware had changed. (not the hard drive though) and i needed to re register my product. but now
it wont let me because the same product key is on my laptop.

ideally i would like the os working on my desktop because thats what i bought it for. is there anyway i can make this happen?
im not really sure how i go about making this change can anyone weigh in?

So you used the same disk to install on two systems? If that's the case you broke MS' EULA. You need to call them.

If that's not the case please clarify. Thanks.
