ah I c , thanks for clearing it up man.
However, here is another question I have...
If I buy the standalone Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems
will I be able to use this disc as a back up to "reinstall" windows 7 home premium 64 on other machines other than my own?
I have 2 laptops in the house that already came with a activated windows 7 home premium 64 bit and they did not come with a disc.
So if they fail or I have to reinstall the OS will that disc work since they are already activated out of the box?, or do I have to buy multiple and reactivate with new serial numbers?
