oem keys are NOT transferable AFAIK....Thats what retail keys are sold forI’m sure it would be an OEM key. If I want to give it a shot, what would be the best way to try? Dumb it down for me, haven’t installed an OS since my XP days. I have no disks currently. 7 or 10
i always figured they were already tied to the device I guess thats part of why they moved away from the stickers. Me i lucked up and got a deal on retail keys back in the day when win7 was brand new so havent had to mess with oem to much. The day retail keys stop working i figure its time to move to Linuxas far as i knew oem key stickers were there only for reactivation. so if they never got used they arent tied to anything. ya they may not be legit but they will work.
