I took my laptop (sig) in for repair cus the screen cracked and it was free to get it fixed as apose to £100+ and i swaped out my hybrid drive for the old blank one, but when i got it back the installed win 7 on it, i checked the product key on it and its not the same as the one on my base (also on my hybrid drive) if i installed win 7 on my desktop could i install it using my new free product key or not, i got a strange feeling no cus it a oem toshiba one

Nope, most likely not. It's probably an OEM key. Only way to activate it on another motherboard/computer would be to call Microsoft and use a little social engineering.
