Yes you can. I transferred my Windows 7 OEM from a dead Laptop to my new build. If microsoft don't except your product key, just telephone them and they'll activate it. I've never failed with a OEM transfer yet. Good Luck.

If you contact microsoft, they may allow it. I've done this a few times and they were really helpful.
