Re: Office Home and Student 2007 from Dell to HP

It came with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 installed on my computer (included in the price I paid for the Dell desktop) AND it came with a sealed Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 installation disc which has remained sealed until now. It has a label on the packaging that says Microsoft....DELL Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 (OEM). (What does OEM stand for)?

It has a product key. The CD says licensed only for distribution with a new PC. Get product support from the manufacturer of the PC. I am thinking that since it will be me that is installing it on my machine from my same network that there shouldn't be a problem. I am the only one that uses the computers in my house so they would never be used at the same time.

When you got the Dell did it come with a separate Office H&S Office 2007 installation disk and 3 licenses license or did a trial copy of Office 2007 H&S come preinstalled with the system?

I have a Dell XPS 420 with Mic.Office Home & Student 2007, Vista Ultimate 32bit, wired to a Linksys WRT600N router. The disc I have from Dell says (OEM). I have been researching for an hour but I can not seem to find a clear answer. I just ordered a HP dv7t series laptop, they did not have Ultimate 32bit, so I ordered Home Premium 32bit, with Microsoft Works 9.0.

It is my understanding that I can install this H&S 2007 on my home network system (desktop & laptop). What is the best way to do this without running into trouble. Can I just pop the Dell OEM disc into the HP? Should I make a copy of the disc? Should/Could I backup the program with my data and transfer it from the desktop to the laptop? What is the best way to go about this? The laptop will have 2 250gb hdd.and a WIFI5100agn link. Can the program just be transferred over through the sharing portal?

Also, can I update my Home Premium to Ultimate with the disc I have? Will this make things more compatible? I don't really know the difference between the Ultimate and the Home Premium.

I am going to have an operation and be bedbound for a while so I would like to be ready to get this done as soon as the HP laptop arrives. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
