  1. Possible to change OEM key to another OEM key


    Hello all,

    I've got second hand laptop yesterday. It is Lenovo T640, which comes with Windows 10 Pro OEM license preinstalled in the BIOS. Unfortunately I'm unable to use this key anymore, because the first owner has reached the limit of activation of this key (I called Microsoft to check that)

    So I should buy another Windows 10 Pro key if I want to get my Windows activated, the question is, can I order new Pro OEM key, or I should go with retail key? I prefer the first one, because the it is much cheeper than retail.

    Thanks in advance!

    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.
