comment Windows 7 OEM license on Macbook?
They don't say whether it has been activated or not. The OPK (OEM Pre-installed Key) is a generic key for each manufacturer so they can image thousands of PCs at once with a genuine key. There are lots of OEM keys (where the actual sticker comes into play) that are not used, but they are still licensed only for that PHYSICAL system. If the license was already activated, it may work, but it may not, depending on how close the hardware is to the original configuration

@sawdust OEM still belongs on the physical hardware it was sold with, whether it be virtual or directly. Moving it between different computers is technically not allowed with any OEM license. If you can find definitive proof otherwise, I'll retract my statement

What have you tried? How is it laid out? This question is missing some details that would make a good answer possible.
