I home built my first system in July '13 as a gaming system.
I bought and installed an OEM version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit which was/is more than adequate for that use.
I would like to update this system to Windows 7 Professional to gain access to more than 16GB of RAM to now use it as my Digital Audio Workstation.
I'm trying to figure out what the best course of action is and either my googling skills are diminishing or my specific query is just not out there:
- If I purchase an OEM version of Windows 7 Professional and do a clean install, will I be able to use the original Home Premium Disc and it's product key on a different computer?
- If I purchase a Home Premium to Professional upgrade, will I be able to use the original Home Premium Disc and it's product key on a different computer?
Thanks in advance for any help you may afford me.
*Edited out second portion of question, found that answer. I put it back as there were people already reading/quoting it.
