The OEM copies of windows 7 are usually linked to the hardware set of the laptop. Unless you purchased a separate windows 7 disc with multiple licenses then you cannot. The disk is only for restoring or repair purposes.

One product key = one license. In your case, the license is tied to the original computer. As long as you install that license on that computer you are good to go.

If you want to move the license to another computer, then you are violating the OEM license.

You can download an ISO of your version of Windows and burn to DVD. Then you'll have a copy if you need to restore (and don't want to use the restore partition on your system). Look here:
