More about what dose
  1. OEM mean original equipment manufacturer, you will have a key, which can be embedde din the bios or on a seperate piece of documentation. The key is tied to your motherboard and cannot be used again if you upgrade the motherboard, only if the board fails and is replaced by another model, which will mean a phone call to Microsoft for activation.
