Microsoft does not have a "one install per key" policy. The retail version of Seven has a policy of allowing an install on one PC at a time. You can uninstall from one PC and move to another. OEM is one machine and that's it.
This could just be one of those unexplainable software hiccups. I'm sure a quick call to customer support will have everything sorted in a few minutes. And you shouldn't have to do this everytime.
