  • How to tell if Windows is for sale at retail or OEM?

    I'm looking to install a new motherboard and processor in my PC, but I was told that the license for Windows 7 is assigned to the motherboard, so if I have an OEM version it will not work with the new parts. Unfortunately I lost my Windows 7 disc, if I still have the product key and product ID. Can someone tell me how I would know if my version is retail or OEM please? I heard that the OEM letters appear in the product ID, if it's an OEM version (which is not in my case), is that correct? Finally, as I have lost the disc, can I download a copy of Windows 7 and use my product key?

    Thanks in advance for any help!
