    If the installation came with the machine, it’s almost certainly an OEM License, which CANNOT be transferred to another machine – to check this, open System Properties. (Click on Start then right-click on My Computer and select Properties) Look at the General tab for the Product ID – if the second group of characters is -OEM- then you have a non-transferable license.
