      Will a new product key be issues for Windows 7 OEM users. There shouldn't be any cases where users have to give Microsoft their Windows 7 OEM key. Windows 7 OEM licenses use generic OEM SLP keys and the unique 25 digit keys on the COA fade. Will the new product key get linked to a Microsoft Account so the user can easily retrieve it and download the .iso at a later date for reinstallation purposes (e.g. hard drive failure or upgrade to a solid state drive).
