I am selling my dell which came with a windows 7 reinstallation cd. if i were to keep the cd would it work on a new build? or is it an oem version? i know our old dells came with a windows xp cd and we've reformatted/reinstalled on 2 different dimension computers just fine? anyone?
That would be an OEM version that is married to the Dell motherboard it was installed on. Installing it elsewhere would require an activation check which would fail.... MS actually keeps a record of sorts on file.
