Re: Transfering Windows 7 from Sony Vaio to MacBook Pro
Regardless of whether or not you can transfer the license to run Windows to your MBP, you are going to need the install media (CD/DVD/download files). Sony and most other manufacturers have their version of Windows tailored to their specific hardware and crapware specs that it would be useless to attempt to move/migrate onto a MBP. First of all, it’s doubtful that you even got CD/DVD with Windows on it... secondly, it wouldn’t install because it would fail the "is this the Sony Vaio for which this version was tailored" test...
