In case this is helpful to anyone (and this is legit, seeing as the OEM has a built-in product key):

You can use a Windows 7 retail disc (full license or upgrade) to do a clean install of Windows 7 on an OEM PC (see TechWrighter's reply to the original post in the link below):

Yes, but not for long :) I bought an upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, which should be arriving any day now. I'll be upgrading my 630i and clean-installing my ASUS laptop with it when it gets here.
