    I'm trying to reinstall Win 7 Pro 64bit on a Dell using the original OEM code but the label is badly worn and I can't read it. I'm in the UK, the machine was bought in the UK so I assumed I could use the OEM codes listed on here but I dont know what the first 5 characters should be before OEM.
    Can anyone help with this please ?

    The first 5 digits only designate the language used for installation... so for instance the Product ID for Dell Windows 7 Professional English is 00371-OEM-8992671-00524. For Spanish 00371 will change.
