If it has no key it is not a genuine legal Windows 7 version. OEM keys are tied to the machine that they are installed on.

From your description, it sounds like you need to buy a retail version of Win7. The OEM activation code that came with your PC is tied to the motherboard and to whatever OS was on it.

The original question was put in a way that makes it against forum rules. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and just close this instead of knocking you off the site for piracy. Please see your Private Message
