Answer:
Each copy of this OS comes with a "key" (an 18 digit code to unlock the program). Once you use this key on one computer, you can not use it on any others. Your answer is NO.

It doesn't mean you won't be able to run some XP programs on Home Edition in backward compatibility, but it does mean you can't run the entire XP operating system on top of Win 7 without the professional version in a separate window as a separate operating system because Microsoft Validation Tool won't recognize your edition to permit download of the virtual machine from their website. There is a potential hack to be found online that may work, but may also invalidate your Home Edition license and score a hefty fine if they catch you. see less

I ran the Microsoft Windows 7 compatibility program to see if the PC would work with the Windows 7-64 bit version and the Microsoft compatibility pointed out two devices that would not work after installing Windows 7 and it was correct in its assessment. You could try running the Windows 7 compatibility software on your ultrabook to see if it works and what it shows; it is not that hard to do and does not take that long. I did have issues with the built in audio capability on my Desktop Intel motherboard that did not show up in the compatibility tests and Intel did not offer a newer driver to make the audio components more compatible with Windows 7. I ended up buying and installing an ASUS XONAR DG Headphone Amp & PCI 5.1 Audio Card for about $27 and so far the PC and audio works just fine. see less

The OEM license is permanently bonded to a machine and cannot be transferred to another machine. In general, Windows 7 can be upgraded upon itself, but I don't know if this OEM disk (designed for new systems) can do that - it comes with a new license key. Most people don't know that Win-7 contains all the versions... Microsoft just needs to give you a new license code (after purchase) and it "unzips" from your existing installation. That is called "Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade" and was cheaper than this OEM disk. It used to be quite cheap, < $50 to step-up one level, but with the heavy MS push for Win-8, I'm not sure if it is still available. Disadvantage = no disk, but after the upgrade, you can use Win-7 to image your system to an external USB HDD and make a CD/DVD system restore disk. Beware of scam sellers; Amazon syas "currently unavailable" - you may need to call Microsoft's help line or check their online store. - Regards. see less
