A retail license means that you purchased Windows either online or from a computer store and should have a physical copy. Retail Windows can be transferred to another computer and activated, but can only be assigned to one computer at a time.
OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer means your copy of Windows was installed on your computer and is licensed only for the life of that computer. Today, most of these licenses are embedded in the BIOS or UEFI firmware. OEM licenses are standard on brand name computers including Dell, Hewlett, Packard, Compaq etc. An exception would be OEM SLP.
