I have not read over the Microsoft OEM EULA for a while.

However, the last time I did, for the OEM version you are limited to installing the OS "ONLY" on the original computer.

Yes, repairs are allowed. However, an entire new system is NOT a repair.

Remember, by the terms of the EULA, Microsoft only allows you to use the software. They retain FULL ownership of the software. As such, you cannot do what you please with it.

If you want an operating system that you can install on multiple machines with no issues, then go open source.
