OEM-branded disks can generally only be installed on the brand of computer they were designed for. Some "hacks" exist for various brands, but they are generally hit-or-miss.

It violates the terms of agreement to do so.
I believe the Windows licensing agreement states that it stays with the original mainboard and CPU it was installed on.

Dell has customized that Windows install version for their computer to include drivers and assorted Dell applications, sometimes specific to that one unit if customized.
