Tried having a look around and get a few answers about this but I thought I'd ask the community.
OEM licenses often cheaper than full retail
Licenses state you can't use them to upgrade to a new version of windows, windows actively blocks this. However you can generally nuke a hard drive and install fresh and it works. Something I found Online pulled from license agreement (paraphrasing).
Question I've got is say you were audited, small business big business by Microsoft and you've used OEM Licenses on different types of machines which are considered to be breaching license terms?
1. Complete custom build
2. Prebuilt with parts changed
3. Prebuilt with parts changed due to repairs.
4. Prebuilts where a devices primary storage has been nuked and then upgraded?
Prebuilting being a machine such as a Lenovo laptop or a dell desktop.
Reason I ask is I've repaired a few machines at work and luckily had original
Keys but had to buy a few retails before from a supported reseller and I've seen how cheap OEM keys are so thinking about using them as there about 1/6th of the price.
