Windows 7: Non activated OEM upgrade disk win7

Non activated OEM upgrade disk win7

I bought a ASUS that had a failed c-mos from the factory. only 2 months after i bought it. Before that happen i ordered the asus OEM Windows 7 upgrade disk then my computer crashes now today the disk came. Can i use this asus oem upgrade disk to upgrade my dell vista to Windows 7? Will it change my needed drivers for my dell and install asus drivers. Or is this simply just an upgrade disk similar to the one you buy retail expect for the key restrictions and will work to upgrade my other computer? both are x64 my dell vista and the asus Windows 7 upgrade. Thanks!!

I notice Acer is sending clean copies of Windows 7 upgrade with keys attached, then another disk with drivers/apps which is surprisingly bloat-free.

It would be interesting to know if the keys are OEM coded to the Vista OEM being upgraded.

It seems highly unlikely that MS would allow manufacturers to mail out free Upgrade copies with no OEM restrictions on the key. But I'll bet that there are some who are testing it already.
