If you bought OEM: No
If you bought retail: Yes

Most people forget you can use Vista for 90 days before activating it.

Select the option not to auto-activate. You get the occasional pop up but my assumption is you can do this then move it as long as it is only on one machine at a time. Remember though that activation protects you in that once you have done so, no one else can steal your code.
