"OEM" as in disks supplied by HP, Lenovo, etc.?

 

If so, contact the system manufacturer re terms of use, etc.

 

If it's a legal "System Builder" version of Win 7...Microsoft says that a new motherboard equates to a new system.

 

If it's one of those illegal "OEM" downloads/iso files...definitely not.
