    Oem key to a normal key


    I bought a prebuilt a few years back which I regret but now im changing cases which means im changing the motherboard to which then means my oem key for windows is useless but I was wondering if there was a way to chamge an oem key to a normal key for a fee of some sort instead of buying a whole new key

    :)

    Windows 7 OEM key

    Perhaps the OEM key has been used a few times already and cannot be used again.
    I have changed motherboards in laptops and the OEM key worked, without having to call Microsoft.

    activate windows 7 oem key

    FWIW, WinXP OEM and Retail disks and keys cannot be interchanged. I suspect it's the same with Win 7.

    The good thing is that any OEM key will work with any OEM install, regardless of the branded vendor.

    activate windows 7 oem key

    I guess you can use any oem win7 disk with an oem win7 key.

    But you can't use an oem win7 key if you install using a retail version win7 disk.

    I stand to be corrected......
