Dell windows 7 oem disc activation

hi, I am new to this forum, and I have a question. I have a dell windows 7 oem disc. I installed it on a dell computer that originally had windows vista on it, and it activated by itself. is it legal to install the same disc on more than one dell computer?

Hi,

No, you can only use 1 licence on 1 PC at a time.

You can only use the Dell windows 7 DVD on the original Dell PC with Windows 7 Pre-installed.

Is this a Windows 7 Upgrade kit or Dell Windows 7 upgrade or full copy disk you bought, or it is the Dell Reinstallation Disk for another PC? If the latter is very unlikely it would activate since it has the SLP activation that only works on the intended PC's BIOS.

It is a dell Reinstallation disk that I bought on eBay.
