OEM reinstall media usually contains the oem generic key and xml file.

The regular MS installation media does not.

Look inside \sources\$OEM$\$$\setup\scripts\

That is the standard DELL win7 Pro key - it only works if combined with the correct xml file and slic table in the bios.

If you have the OEM slic table in bios:

EITHER
Use OEM reinstall media

OR
Use regular MS install media and 7oeminstaller

OR
Use regular MS install media and the key on the sticker that came with the machine ( if you can find and read it)

If the codes are embedded into the DVDs - I want to match the DVDs with the right computer.
If the codes are not embedded into the DVDs, then it doesn't matter which original DVDs go with which computer.
