Installing Windows 10 OEM

I am selling my pc very soon to my friend and right now I have the free version of windows 10 with no activation key. I am soon going to be resetting the computer to brand new. I am wondering if when I reset it and it asks me for a Activation code right after you reset your PC can i enter in the OEM key and will it work? Thanks in advance for the help and support.

Actually, the OEM version is for those marketing a PC to give to others. So yes. (Officially, it's only for PC construction/refurbishing corporations and companies, so usage of it by a private citizen is piracy, but Microsoft has been so unclear on the subject that no one, even the government, cares.)
