Can the pre installed OS be installed on another PC?

Is it possible to install a pre installed OS onto another PC with the back up disks you have to create when you first turn on your new PC?

Backup disks don't contain the OS installer, only the system files are included

You won't be able to activate the o/s on different hardware - so there is no point.

Pre installed o/s will only work on the original machine.
