1) you don't move but install Windows or any OS on a different system to start with.

2) The answer to that is quite obvious! NO! Illegal! NADA! Why do you think Product Activation was first seen with XP to do what? Fight software piracy!

Next question please!

You can remove Vista. But you can not sell it or place it on another machine without breaking the License agreement with Microsoft and doing something illegal. Topic closed.
