I have a notebook that has two instances of windows7 on it one is my old work the other is my new and legit work. I limited the size of this hard drive and had no more room for expansion (480 Gig) so I bought a new 1 Terra SSD and used Acronis this copy did not transfer the AB Serial numbers, so I tried the one that came with the Samsung SSD it limits HD transfer to 3 drives (I had 5 drives) I moved the data off these extra drives, same thing no serial number transfer. I thought about this and decided to try Linux. CLONEZILLA. It was a little daunting but I figured if I screwed up the Serial numbers than AB would have to cough up since someone paid a lot of money for me to have these serial numbers. Anyway CLONEZILLA moved all the contents and proportionally spaced my new Hard drive. I exchanged the hard drives and AB works. I now have two HD's that can run on my notebook.

This brings me to my next though I wonder if the AB serial numbers are linked to the Hard drive serial numbers. How does windows operating system interact with the hard drive serial numbers. If I change the serial numbers will windows still boot?? I am thinking if you have a computer and then copy the serial numbers of your Hard drive to a new computer and then copy the lic. files will AB software just run. I am not trying to sell the software I am trying to make sure that my software stays current with my future computers.

You are correct. The software links to the volume ID of your hard drive, or the MAC address of your network card depending on how it was set up
