Hi. I just purchased DELL Windows 7 Ultimate reinstall DVD disk through auction site.
First of all, is that possible to install to another brand of PC such as SONY or HP using DELL DVD?
Second, what is http://d-fault.nl/PIDCheck.aspx site? Is this site llegal?

You can not use a DELL reinstall disc on another brand computer with a different brand name. Even if you tried the BIOS wouldn't let you do it in any given computer
That site looks a bit shady, are you referring to the some-what inexpensive price of 85.77 for a copy of W7 ? I bet if you clicked on that link you would probably give yourself a virus too.
I have run into this stuff before, if it's too good to be true, it probably is. What you will get is a Windows box with all the correct install DVD(s) and instructions, but the product sticker will be phony as well as the product key, e-bay is full of this as well.
Here is a reputable online store and the price is not that much more expensive then what the ad shows in your link.
