  1. OEM Windows install


    Cannot respond to original post where I asked about, is Win 11 is an upgrade to win 8 or 10, or can you buy and OEM version of win 11 to install on a home built computer that I build for myself, as a stand along version on a new drive, I do not or ever have upgrade from version to the next, upgrades seem to run very much slower then a clean install.

  3. Question On OEM Windows clean install......

    "Flavors" of Windows licenses

    Windows can be a little "odd" about license keys. There are at least 4 categories:
    • Retail
    • OEM
    • Volume (electronic download)
    • Corporate (no key needed)
    For guaranteed success, the license key and media should be in the same category. If you have retail media, you may not be able to install it using an OEM or Volume license key, even though the key is valid for that version of Windows. *Wtf :wtf: Apparently, this is part of Microsoft's anti-piracy scheme (i.e., all customers are guilty until proven innocent).

    Question On OEM Windows clean install......

    Yea, I got that part, was just wondering if the OEM disk/key part was broken down into further catergories, like vendor specific - DELL, HP, etc. ?

    What about service packs? I have a retail XP SP1 disk. I recall seeing a way to make a new disk with all the latest SP's. Sorry, rambling off topic here...
