Windows 7: Hp dv4-2013la

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)
Hp dv4-2013la

Hello SF!

Today, i got home and BAM! new Laptop on my bed!

It's a HP DV4-2013LA, but im too freaking lazy to remove the incredible amount of bloatware, turns out i have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits DVD and the Laptop comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits too, now the question is...

If i perform a windows 7 clean install (both OS are the same, the one that came on the laptop and the one i have on dvd), can i use the same OEM key to activate it??

The DVD i have is a RETAIL version and i already used the key on my desktop PC!

Thanks in advanced!

As long as you use the OEM key on the OEM machine, you are fully compliant.

No no, of course i'll be using my OEM key on the laptop, im only performing a clean install cause i don't like the huge amount of bloatware that came pre-installed, and the 320gb hard drive came with 2 partitions! C: (System) D: Recovery

Since im not going to use the recovery partition, i guess i could delete it, just cause i dont like partitions! and if i ever use it, it will revert the laptop to its original state, and that means: incredible amount of bloatware again!

So, as long as i match the OEM key with a same edition of Windows 7, im OK, right?
