    well looking at the disc its most likely only set up to be a upgrade disc (though there are ways to install around that). but you will need to check the files inside to see if the toshiba slp key and cert is included or not. if it is already in it then it will only work with a toshiba system with the matching slic table in the bios unless you edited it out but then it will not be the original disc after that. did it come with any kind of new lic key or not also?

    There are no SLP Keys + certs for upgrade dvd's as far as i know, just regular upgrade key.

    So it comes with the exactly the same license as on the sticky under your laptop? oO.

    i have seen a number of these free win7 upgrade discs that were offered right before win7 was released come with oem slp keys. they were offered to be a free vesion of win7 about a month or so before it came out. you had to mail in for them with a coupon that came inside the box with the system when you bought it. i have seen them from dell, hp, etc. i am a repair tech and have seen many of these discs..

    There are heaps on ebaY - mostly Dell, Lenovo and a few HP. All that I have seen are upgrades from Vista and they work on any PC so the key on the product must be an "OEM system builder" type key if they activate on any PC.

    If the key has been activated online it won't work without begging M$ for a code over the phone which may or may not work.

    Haven't seen any Toshiba ones before.

    Hm you can use it on another pc beacuse oemslp keys are not specific for computer but version only.

    But ill let someone verify that hehe
