When I test the OEM key on a VBox machine with Windows Single Language ISO, the key fails.
Do not test the activation on the second computer (for example VirtualBox or VMware Player), because then you have to call the activation robot.
If you receive an error message: This key didn't work, please check it and try again, or try a different key.
Now you will see text that says: This product key is being used on another PC. Please try a different key.
Then you need select Call support.
NOTE: The activation robot asks you how many PCs you have installed Windows on. The correct answer is number 1.
No, you can not transfer the OS to a new PC, as this is a OEM manufacturer's PC licence.
Microsoft said:Can I transfer the software to another user? You may transfer the software directly to another user, only with the licensed computer. The transfer must include the software, proof of purchase, and, if provided with the computer, an authentic Windows label such as the certificate of authenticity label including the product key. You may not keep any copies of the software or any earlier version. Before any permitted transfer, the other party must agree that this agreement applies to the transfer and use of the software.
