If it is an OEM you don't.

If it is retail install it on the new system and call Microsoft to deactivate the old and activate the new.

You can't move one operating system into another, so I'm not sure what you're really asking. Are you just wanting to move data? You can't move programs and keep Windows 7. It won't work. You have to reinstall everything.

I was trying to move all the files and docs. from an XP computer to a new win 7 computer.
I used the transfer files in both the XP and the 7 computer using a shared network. It is transferring
now and will transfer 105 GB in another 3 hours. Thanks for your input.

OK, transferring or copying data by network is a good way to do it. :)
