  • The "Dell branded" OEM software is most likely a Dell Recovery software disk.

    That type of software will only work with a Dell computer And only a Dell Computer that originally came with the same version of Windows as is on that Disk.

    Those Disks are sold by Dell as a replacement for the recovery software that originally came on the Dell Computer.

     

    A good rule of thumb is if you have to ask if something is legal... assume it's not.

     

    Thank you,
