The windows disk you have is hard coded to a specific machine (an OEM version) and the license extends to the computer, not the user.
You could argue that this is the same machine, but legally Dell would argue the main componants of a machine are the motherboard and CPU.
Dell alters the windows install disk to only recognize it's hardware.
