Im planning to build a new gaming PC but i dont want to buy new Windows. Right now i got Windows 7 on my iMac and i wonder if i can move the bootcamp partition over to the PC?
yes if the windows was retail and not oem
if it was oem it would tie to the hardware of the first install
in which case you would have to call ms on the phone to convince them
to let you install on new hardware
Ok, but what is a oem???
AFAIK you have to INSTALL windows on the PC, so it can recognize the hardware and install correctly, moving the Bootcamp partition will not work. So you use the CD with windows or the iso file that you used to bootcamp.
