    Windows 7 OEM Hardrive Upgrade
    Whats going on guys. I recently purchased an OEM version of Windows 7. I thought it was the full version and installed it with bootcamp. I need to upgrade my hardrive soon and need to reinstall my copy of windows in a bigger partition. Will microsoft allow me to do this? I have seen where if you call, then they will give you a activation code but I am not sure if this applies to the OEM version. Thanks for the help!

    As long as the OEM version is not moved to another machine from where it was originally installed, MS will issue a new activation code sequence. It may even activate automatically again over the internet.
