entering an OEM key in a retail installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm building two computers and want to only load SW once since it takes 2 days to get it all done.  The first I have built with Win 7 Ult retail 64 bit. 

    For the second I want to clone the disc and then enter a new win 7 key, but this one is an oem build.  Can I enter a new key that is OEM on a disc that has been set up originally with a retail windows key?

    I really don't want to have to re-do the whole install again.

    Not sure if this is the best forum to post this but seems like the closest.
