I don't know about oem key;

 

but "this computer doesn't meet the minimum hardware requirements"

 

If i'm correct this occurs when you have driver for different product.  ( eg. installing intel graphic driver when you have amd/ati card or so).

please install all drivers from the top & correct order.

Hi satish92,

 

     By any chance you are using a full retail version of Windows 7 Home Premium instead of an OEM to reinstall windows.  If so, please check this link out.  This will explain why you are getting the licensing issue.

 

Activate Windows By Phone
