Windows 7: Clean Install Windows 7 on VAIO OEM PC

Clean Install Windows 7 on VAIO OEM PC

I have a Sony VAIO All In One pc (VPCL137FX) running Windows 7 SP!. I am currently removing all of the Sony bloatware most of which is programs that Sony stopped updating years ago like their Media Gallery and Photo Browser...

i have created a Windows PE Bootable USB UDisk for the computer and downloaded an ISO for Windows 7 SP1 and installed that on a separate USB UDisk. I was able to download the ISO using my laptop and the Media Creation Tool.

Am I going to have any licensing issues if I do a Clean Install on the VAIO pc. It is an OEM version but i do have the product key.

Please advise...
