You don't need to have both computers online. The uninstall is not recorded.
Your license is not transferred by an automatic process. Just install your
Office on the new PC, then do the right thing and uninstall it on the old
PC. Attempt to activate over the web. It may well work. If you get a message
about "key already in use" or something similar, you should also get
instructions on how to contact MS for resolution.
