    Because of the issues yesterday - want to get my W7 license sorted before I attempt upgrade again.

    When I put the disc in I get the following window ...

    I went a couple of steps in ... it says it will install one copy pre-activated of any W7 version
    I have multiple HD .... could I install on a different HD without impacting current install .... just concerned about impact on BIOS

    I have multiple HD
    This is another bad sign if they are all in the system....meaning the MBR is on a previous HDD which could be part of the activation error you are getting.

    Yes, you can install it on a different hard drive.

    Even if HD is in same machine connected to same mobo.?
    If it is OK I could try an install ... can I just add it to a HDD or should I create a new partition.
