  • Windows 7 VLK to OEM

    Dear all,

    There is post about how to convert Windows XP VLK to OEM. Is there any method for Windows 7 to change from VLK to OEM license after install?

    Many Thanks,

    If you have a valid VLK, why would you want to change it?

    Anyway, has a few results on changing the key
    Something there might help you

      With Windows 7:
      Left click the Orb
      right click Computer
      left click Properties page
      (or hold down Windows Key and press PAUSE)
      scroll to bottom of page an click Change Product Key
      Enter a valid unused OEM Key

      Now that you have entered your OEM key, if anything happens to the motherboard and it needs to be replaced with a new one, you will need to go and purchase a NEW copy of Windows 7 since the OEM Key is tied to the motherboard.

        Dear all,

        I thought the Win 7 VLK CD image is not universal and different from the Win 7 OEM CD image. By just simply change product key works?

        Many Thanks!
