Hi! I recently installed Windows 7 on my laptop, not realizing that my license was only for one computer (the laptop makes two now). It is, of course, unable to be activated. Instead of buying a new copy of the full software would I be able to just upgrade my version? Or do I have to have an activated copy first in order to upgrade?

No, you can use the Windows Anytime Upgrade. Click your start button and in the search field type "Windows Anytime Upgrade" and you can either purchase an upgrade key directly through microsoft, or you can get them at most retailers (IE: BestBuy, CompUSA, Frys)
