Windows 7: Backup and restore the same image on multiple OEM PCs

Backup and restore the same image on multiple OEM PCs

Hi

I would like to create an Acronis image of one Windows 7 PC with OEM license.
How it should work to recover this image across multiple PCs with other OEM licenses (each with the same hardware)?

OEMs are tied to as specific machine and MOBO.

Even though the other comps may have the exact same hardware and you could restore the image to them, you can have the OS (with key) on one comp at a time.

You would see the image on the other comps, but a message will appear saying you have "X" days left to buy a key.

Kari is good at that stuff. Maybe take a look at his sysprep tutorial.
