Default Re: vista OEM move to another computer?

I have Windows Vista Business installed on two computers and it activated fine, well, after I called Microsoft. I got some Indian woman on the other line reading the manual word for word, lol. I told her that I had to reinstall Windows (on the same computer) because of boot problems. She just said, "ok sir, I will start by giving you the first set of number....."

No, it's just an activation code windows uses to know it is activated. It is not a new key by any means.

it would be possible to activate it on 2 computers..the time you would run into trouble would be when you go to windows update and it does the genuine advantage validation crap.
