    Hi,

    I purchased 5 * HP 500B Win 7 Pro 64bit pc's last year. We use a dos based app which will not run on 64bit. I used a HP Win 7 32bit receovery CD to reinstall these 5 pc's. They now have the same product ID.
    Each PC has the Win 7 64bit oem sticker.
    Am I covered licensing wise for this scenario?

    Interesting one. Where were the HP Win 7 32 bit recovery CDs from? When you reinstalled with them, did you use the license keys originally on the PCs?

      the recovery cd's are from another HP PC which shipped with win 7 pro 32 bit. I was not prompted to enter a product ID during the recovery.

        I see. OEM copies can often be tied to a specific PC. If I was you, contact Microsoft licensing support to confirm it is ok and if possible, get it in writing.
