    No, chances are the Acer one is an OEM key, which is locked to one board. It might work, but it's against licensing.
  3. its home premium oem key
  4. Licensing aside and morals aside, I've done it on various laptops and never had an issue. Most 'OEM' keys are BIOS SLIC activated, not key activated.
  5. In other words, yes you can IMHO
