    OEM licences are linked to the first computer they're used on and die with that computer. They are intended to be sold with computers, not on their own.

    I would speak to some licencing specialists like pugh. Your best option will be to get some windows 7 licenses with downgrade rights. I'm not sure you can do this with the retail version or if you have ot buy then through one of MSes licesing schemes.
