  1. Can I reuse my OEM key on the same PC after resetting?


    I'm planning on resting my PC using this method: Start menu>Settings>Update and Security>Reset this PC>Remove files and clean the drive.

    I'm wondering if I can still use the same OEM key before the reset. Thanks

    :)

    The OEM key can be reused on the same hardware. It can't be transferred to new/different hardware. A retail key can be transferred to new hardware.,

    windows 7 key reuse

    Hey guys,

    I'm selling my 1 year old laptop (laptop 2 in sig), which came with Vista OEM.
    I installed windows 7 on it with a key from MSDN. My best friend(the buyer) will format the laptop before he gives it to his sister, so I wanted to know how I can reuse my key for a new pc in the future.

    I googled a little bit, but I couldn't find a clear answer. Will I have to call Microsoft or something?

    kind regards,
