you should go and actually read the EULA for the Upgrade version. the System Builder one allows you to transfer machines I'm not sure how it'd work with the upgrade version, since technically once you upgrade the old OS's licence key is replaced by the new one and isn't "valid" anymore..
Only for as long as you are using it to supplant that version on the current PC. If you decide to transfer it to a different PC, and upgrade from an OS on that PC then you cancel out the old license there, and restore the original license back to the first PC.
It gets confusing...but needless to say if he upgrades from 7 on a PC...then decides to use it on another PC, as long as he removes 8 from that first PC he's just fine...and can put 7 back on there...as long as he doesn't use the original license from the new machine elsewhere.
At least according to the EULA, unless someone can point out where I'm mistaken.
