    OEM Windows 7

    Hi,

    Unfortunately no. You may only install Windows 7 OEM on a single computer, unless of course, you purchased a Windows 7 family pack. OEM licences allow a copy of Windows to be installed on the computer it came with, or in your case, the computer you built for your mother. If you want to install it on your computer as well, you will need to purchase another licence.

    I hope this helps,

    Shane.

    u can use DVD for installing to another pc, but u can use the key only for 1 pc.
    u must buy another copy to use another key on another pc.

    Well if you fancy a trip to the darkside then you could always use a crack / loader on the other machine. :D
