If the version of Windows 7 is a retail version, you can reinstall it on a different machine. If it won't activate, call Microsoft Licensing Support and explain. They will re-activated.

If the version of Windows 7 is OEM (vendors sell OEM licenses), you cannot reinstall it on a different machine. If this is the case, you can try Microsoft Licensing Support. They might bend because it was only 2 weeks.

The answer of the friend below is right.
Windows 7 whchi version is OEM will identify the BIOS of computer, so you cannot reinstall it on a different machine.
But a retail version won't  identify the BIOS of a machine. You can reactivate it on a differernt machine.
Good luck!
