So you have a Windows 8 Oem key for each computer? That different than. I will let Whs explain how to do it and remain under the EULA. My grammar is not that great.

As far as ebay, I wouldn't sell a key or oem disk. The computer as a whole or without an os should be ok to sell.

Just make sure that the OEMs remain with the PC where they were first installed.
