Re: OEM locked windows

If what you've done is install a non-Dell mainboard, you will need a new Windows license for it - even if you get a copy of Windows, the OEM license key won't activate it.  When you call Microsoft, you'll be told you need a new license (and MS isn't selling Windows 7 licenses any longer, as the OS goes end of life in just about a year and a half from now).
