    I was browsing around here and I found this topic with a bunch of OEM product keys.
    Topic name is Windows 7 OEM SLP Key Collection (Can't post links <__<)
    The main question I have is. Could I use one of these to activate a Windows 7? (I know I could use the Windows Loader)
    But this is just to get an answer for my curiosity, any reply's would be great :)

    Yes, they could be used to activate your version of Windows 7 but you need to have a bios with SLIC 2.1

    Even if you do have SLIC 2.1 you also need matching manufacturer .xrm-ms certificate + OEM:SLP key before you can activate.

    cant type the key in the "change license key" section. instead use slmgr.vbs .. or opatool or daz windows loader.
