    Does not need too, as Showkey will show any and all Windows keys and display which type they are OEM or Retail keys.
    Plus .....do not want this user to post His Windows key in a public forum either.....
    Problem in 2011 (seven forum) was subsequently resolved by BIOS update. The C drive installed in 2011 and still in use was a new clean HDD & installed with the current Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
    showkey reports:

    Windows 7 Home Premium

    Product ID which includes "OEM"

    Installed Key: The Correct one - as on my MS label

    BUT
    OEM Key: OEM key not present in firmware

    As i said earlier thats a sticker key from a genuine OEM comp not a self build.
    If you post that report UNadulterated in the W7 forum, I can check it fully (Hawkman = Torchwood).

    Anyone can purchase a copy of an OEM version of an OS and install it in a selfbuilt.

    Sorry, but not really sure of the implications of your comment.

    Sorry, I don't understand! The PC was built for me and windows 7 was installed with OEM software. The software has been verified by MS.
    I guess that the person/store that built that PC for you also used the same copy of 7 OEM for more than one PC and another one using that key has upgraded so your getting the message because of that. It's a valid key but it has multiple users. I've seen shops that do that. The solution is to get a 7 home key or just get 10 home key.

    And from what he's said a system build made his and likely used the same copy for multiple PC's.
