Hi, I have an old laptop that came with a windows 7 coa sticker. I want to use this key in my next build, but I can't turn the laptop on to deactivate. Please help.

Laptops are almost always OEM license and limited to that specific PC.

And Win 7 is now dead so Microsoft isn't likely to help you transfer the license even if it was a full version.

Not unless you have an older Win 10 key laying around.

8/8.1 compatibility isn't assured on the new generations leaving 10 as the only option now.
