I have never called MS for any support in my 20 years of PC building. Come to think of it, I haven't called any software or hardware company for any support. The only people I have had to call for support was cable company or telephone company for Internet/router/modem issues.
Aren't you the lucky one, pparks1 was making a valid post pointing out the reasons behind OEM versions for those who aren't aware of the limitations.

The Windows 7 Home Premium OEM: $99.99 appears to be only the 32 bit version according to Newegg's site. Wonder if it will also contain the 64 bit version. Anybody know?

Thanks
