  1. Transfer OEM key


    I have an windows 7 OEM key which I used to activate windows 10 on my old laptop but I got a new one without windows in which I got to activate the old key without any problems. For what it seems, the key is linked to my account. Is it okay to have 2 computers with same key? if not how can I manage the keys? Can I simply transfer the old OEM key to the ne laptop (which I already did but not sure if its okay)?

    :)

  2. Product Key Transfer (OEM)

    You can't use it elsewhere.

    If the Laptop/Computer came with the Windows Operating System preinstalled (Dell, HP, Acer, etc) , that Product Key that came with the Laptop/Computer is for the
    preinstalled OEM License and is non-transferable.

    The OEM License/Product Key (preinstalled Operating Systems on Dell, HP, etc machines) is tied to the first machine it is installed on and dies when that machine dies.

    The above rule also applies to OEM System Builders Licenses.

    Retail Operating System License, that you buy and install yourself, are allowed to be transferred to another machine.

    But Retail Licenses can also only be installed on one machine at any particular time.

    Can I Transfer an OEM Product Key to New PC?


    I built a new PC and want to install windows 8.1. For this I need to buy a product key. I was told that OEM product keys are "married" to the motherboard for life.

    But lets say I install win 8.1 and use an OEM product key yo activate it. And lets say in the future I get rid of the old motherboard and install a new motherboard. Will I be able to transfer the product key to the new motherboard? Or would I need a retail product key to transfer the key to a new PC or motherboard?

  4. Transfer OEM key

    Transferring Retail but keeping OEM key's installed?

    I'm upgrading my laptop (Razer blade stealth) from the OEM windows 10 home, to the RETAIL version of windows 10 pro. I'm wondering if I take that RETAIL product key, and transfer it to a new computer (example, buying a new laptop), will the old laptop
    still have the OEM windows 10 home product key installed after the transfer? Or will windows be illegitimate?
