Windows 7: OEM System Builder Licensing Question

OEM System Builder Licensing Question

I just bought a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM system builder pack to install on a rig I am building. The authorized distribution and acceptance info indicates that as a system builder I accept the limitation that the system will be sold to a third party.

I'm concerned that if I am building this for myself and therefore can't sell it to a third party, I am going to have a problem properly registering and using this software.

Am I understanding this stuff correctly? Have I purchased software that I will not be able to use?

Thanks for your reply,

You should have no problems using the software, just activate it as usual.
