Hello Baccini,

Is it retail or OEM.

OEM - No Chance im afraid.

Retail - Definitetly - Just make sure you uninstall windows from the old PC before installing on new PC.

Then it's retail. OEM's are only a single disk and no box, just a sleeve.

Agree with Ken.

My OEM came in what looks like a DVD movie case but no box.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
