    Default New hard drive...OS question...

    Ok..so here is my problem...

    I bought a laptop from a guy here at work. The laptop does not have a hard drive in it currently. The laptop is a acer aspire, and I am going to get a hard drive for it because it seems to have decent specs for a laptop and the hard drive isn't too pricey.

    But my question is, can I use my system builders copy of windows 7 home to re-intall the OS back on the new hard drive.

    I just used this disk for my new desktop, but I was thinking I could use it again on the laptop and just use the serial number from the bottom sticker on the laptop.

    It was my understanding that the actual number is locked to the motherboard, so any matching OS disk would work..



    Thanks in advance.
