I'm planning to reinstall Win 7 - here's my plan:
Current Setup: 7 year old Maxtor 160GB partitioned ATA Drive with Win 7 installed
Brand New Seagate SATA 500GB partitioned and ready to go! (100GB for system - yes I know it's overkill but I've found Win 7 seem
to take up more space than XP) rest for Data
Here's my plan: (After 18 months of using Win 7 it's become messy and slow and I now realise I need to do things differently and I neglected to make an Acronis bare bones Image after install)
I want to rebuild on new drive while continuing to be able to boot into current system until I've 'tweaked' new build to my satisfaction. As long as I wipe old system before the 30 day Activation is up, will I run into issues with licensing?
I plan to use old drive for Open Source OS.
Any advice would be welcome!
