I bought an emachines computer a while back (bad idea lol). When I bought it, it already had windows 7 installed onto it. I got no pre packaged windows 7 key and disc or anything like that.

Anyways, now I am now looking to build my own PC. I was wondering if it is possible to switch windows 7 from my emachines onto a new pc? What I really am asking is when you buy an emachines with windows 7 already installed on it, is it like you own your own copy of windows 7 that you can put on other computers, or is it a locked version that can only be used on this one specific hard drive?

Thanks for your help.
