OEM installations are tied to the original motherboard of the computer that they were installed on, so cannot be moved to a different computer.
There have been cases where, after a PC with an OEM installation died, people have pleaded with MS who have reactivated the OEM for a different computer - my understanding is the success of this is a bit of a lottery.
