Hi there
Confused but not dangerous here. My computer was running Vista home basic SP2, and the hard drive seems to have died. I have a recent backup so that shouldn't be an issue, and I never did update to W7 prior to the crash. Want to do that now, not sure how to begin. Have bought OED W7 and a nice new 160 GB drive. How to introduce them to each other and promote a fruitful union?
ever hopeful

unfortunately oem software cannot be used on your system. It is only for a system that never had an operating system on it. The only hardware replacement you can make where you can use oem is the motherboard.
