Deploying Windows 7 Professional using WDS into Windows 7 OEM licensed workstation
I'm about to deploy new Windows 7 Professional OS into my new HP Desktop 6000 SFF ( Win 7 Professional OEM license included)
my question is that for the base image, Is it ok to get just one Windows 7 Professional with 3 years Open Value ?
The image is created from a volume install/key and this is then imaged on to 100 identical machines which all hold their own OEM licenses, So my assumption is that as long as i can show the OEM key for each machine, then it is all legal.
Any suggestion and reference to the Microsoft Official Documentation will be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft's Re-imaging Rights document has this to say regarding imaging using VL media.

it seems i can just buy one open License OS and then deploy the image into the OEM licensed machine.
