Secondly I think you are going to find that the reg keys have been used on the systems they were shipped with and therefor the keys are worthless also.

The fact that there are so many indicates they are OEM versions that were meant to be used on each system.
To make it simple they are worthless to everyone but your IT dept for the systems they were sold for.
The disks will not work on any other system but the Dell systems they were bought for. As you said Dell Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit reinstallation DVD packets with manuals in boxes that some Dell laptops were shipped in.

You cannot legally install them on anything else but the systems they specifically were sold with.
If they actually say what you stated on the disc and\or packaging they are for the Dells and nothing else.
Just because they installed on a different Dell system does not nullify the fact what Microsoft's EULA states for the OEM licenses. They are to be used on one system and only the system they were originally intended for. They are non transferable without paying for a new license and once installed and activated they are MARRIED to the original hardware in that system.

Most end users do not know the difference between a OEM and a Retail installation of a OS and I try my best to explain without sounding like I'm putting them down or talking down to them.
Please let me know how everything goes and if you need further assistance with this topic just let me know.
Thank you for being so cooperative and understanding through the steps.
