Windows 7: Is it legit to use a preinstalled seven Key on another PC ?

Hi Noel DP.
Yes it seems to be the French version of Home premium Seven. Name apart (or weird transalation apart) it is the same thing.
As I recall... because I use it for just one or at the most 2 days, before installing Seven Integral.

On the other hand, as this was preinstalled, so OEM, on the new PC, now i doubt strongly I can use this key on another PC. Unfortunatrly form me.

So there's no problem about 'genuineness' , because it's nothing to do with the Family Pack upgrade.
Ah, thanks. I got lost in translation again...

You are correct - an OEM License is locked to the first motherboard on which it is activated (and the machine to which the COA sticker is attached, as a consequence), and cannot under any circumstances be moved to another machine.

OTOH, if your Ultimate/Integrale version is a Full Retail one, you could move that, and purchase an Upgrade for this machine.
