Q. If I'm performing a physical to virtual migration, can I move my physical Windows license to the virtual environment?

A. Assuming you're turning off the physical box and wiping the OS, you can move a Windows license from a physical to a virtual environment based on Microsoft's 90 day move rights. These rights allow licenses to be moved once every 90 days between servers, including moving to a virtualization host.
