Just keep in mind that OEM versions are designed to be installed onto 1 computer and it cannot be moved to another computer at a later time. And with OEM versions, you don't get direct support from Microsoft but rather the system builder...which in the case of a home hobbyist...you would contact yourself for support.

All true, but if you know what you are doing or have someone that does and do not have a lot of money it is a lifesaver for some.

Hi guys the $29.99 is for Home Premium or Pro version? My sister is eligible for the discount...i wanted to find out what version they are offering her...but apparently even forwarding it invalidates the offer!!!

Yes, and i know you are just informing us as to how it is SUPPOSED to be. However to all of those who are not aware, everything you have said is true but you CAN install OEM as many times as you like. When activating call Microsoft and tell the rep that you have just upgraded some hardware on your pc. They will give you an activation code.

I have an OEM of Windows XP PRO that I bought in early '02 and I have had it on at least 5 machines since. From the original p4 2.4ghz to my core2duo I have now.

Activating OEM

Hello, I'm new here... and I'm running a 10year old Dell with XP. I'm building a new computer for myself based on a Core I5, and am in the dark about OEM versions of Windows 7. Were I to install an OEM copy on my new machine would I be able to activate it? Thanks Alboggs.
