If I understand you correctly, you installed windows 7 on a second computer without a second product key, and now you want to fix it, buy a new copy of windows 7 and make it legal. If correct, this is not too difficult. If you are going to a higher level of windows 7, (basic to home, or home to pro, etc), put in new disk and upgrade and it will ask for the new key. If you are purchasing the same edition as you installed, it is even simpler, you just need to "Upgrade Product Key". Click the start orb, then 'computer', then 'system properties', and finally click on 'change product key' and it should walk you through the process.
