I plan on completely taking apart the laptop I have at the moment, and selling the parts, since I have all the parts for my new computer sitting in the other room. I was wondering, is it possible to use the key for Windows 7 home premium OA 64 bit key that is printed on the bottom of my laptop on a sticker, and use it on my desktop? I'd like to know, so that I don't have to spend an extra $100 trying to get a copy.

Simple answer: No
The OEM key is tied to the motherboard of the first computer on which it is installed. In this case, the laptop. It cannot be transferred to another.
