i wouldn't imagine you can, good luck though

there was a thread about this just a couple of days ago. in a nutshell: you can't. your OEM win is linked to you motherboard.

something fishy going on here....

selling a laptop then effectively disabling its OS key

then you say you suddely found a link to transfer an oem key (which you cant, at all)

I bought the win7 separate, the laptop has a valid vista key which it came with.

upgrades and oem are not transferrable only retail is as someone pointed out before

if you have retail delete win7 of old laptop and reinstall vista then install win7 on new laptop and activate key might need to do it by phone

whats oem and retail ??

i bought my win7 from tesco when it was released. is that retail version ?
#8
if u bought it pre isntalled its OEM
if you installed it yourself, its retail (i.e. disc)
#9
When it asks for the key it'll tell you it's not valid ('cos you've already installed it on another PC), it'll then ask a series of questions before giving you a number to phone to get a new key. I know someone who did this 7 times with one retail disk.

I am sure you have retail as are others but check the box if it looks like the one below you have the upgrade

or if you have retail it will look like this

What if your laptop with oem dies? does your oem version die to? coz you still have paid for it.
