Hey!

I got a CD key for Windows 7 professional (english), but i lost my CD for it. Fortunately, my friend has a Windows 7 professional CD that i can borrow, but it's in swedish. My question is; will i be able to use my CD key for the english edition for the swedish one?

Thanks in advance!

Matter of trying. But it should work - in principle (as radio Yerewan would say).

Is it an OEM disk ? If so I doubt it.

Good point LH. OEM disks are mobo bound.
