Comes in DVD case with Microsoft sticker. It is the 64bit version and had been used on a media centre with an Intel CPU.

Comes with a piece of hardware to comply with ms oem system rules.

Was there an XP Home PREMIUM version ever?
#7
You can only sell this with the pc it was installed on,
#8
Yes. I am including a part of the pc it was installed on.
#9
What part ? ,The motherboard ?.
#10
Yes. Part of the motherboard that survived. Does it need to be working? Do you have a link where is says that the motherboards needs to be working?
#11
Did MS sell a Vista Home then?

Did MS sell a Vista Home then?

Did it not sell a basic home version?
#13
When the OEM version of Vista is installed on a PC and the PC dies then the OEM version of Vista dies with it.

That is the Microsoft rules.

You cant just then sell the used Vista OEM CD with any old bit of hardware.

You CAN sell the Retail version of Vista if the original PC dies, as long as it is still not installed on that or any other PC.

Link with the above rule?
I know for sure that laptops that need a motherboard replacement do not need a new OEM licence.

That's because they are an exception:

"These are called OEM Licenses and of course they come with more restrictions since they are the cheapest. An OEM license only allows you to use the software on the specific computer it came with. In other words, when that computer is old and slow and it is time to throw it away, that license must legally be thrown away as well".
#17
to be fair although this is in the licence terms as far as i now it has never been tested in law and as there is no/never any contract between end users and MS, I doubt very much it would stand up

Just to prove that indeed you can use your OEM licence without any problems even if you change the motherboard.

Thats why it is sold with the motherboard it came with. Can't see any problem or any mention that the motherboard or whatever hardware must work. The interpretation above is not from microsoft.

No, that's not what I posted - unless you're selling the entire PC the license came with then it doesn't apply. Microsoft may reactivate your license but they don't have to, normally OEM licenses from previously activated systems are not allowed to be sold on this forum. If you're selling a dud motherboard (I can't work out what you mean you say you're selling the part that still works) then that's not going to be much use as the buyer is never going to be able to generate the matching hash for the activation key.

There is no mention anywhere that the PC must be working in order to distribute the OEM licence which came with it.

The buyer can decide if the dud motherboard or non-working PC is going to be of any use (the only reason they are sold are to comply with MS OEM distribution requirements). For Microsoft it does not make any difference if things work or not as long as there is only ONE licence per PC.

You are not allowed to sell OEM license as it is only work with the first machine been installed on. As the OEM license is registered to Hardware ID. If you install on another machine, it will let you install, but you won't be able to activate and the windows will expire in like 60 days

Wrong.

From the microsoft OEM licence

"We grant you a nonexclusive right to distribute an individual software licence with an assembled computer system"


In addition you are allowed to upgrade and modify your system configuration without having to reactivate in the majority of cases. You can reactivate any time.

No you are wrong, as I was in the same situation, when i try to install the Vista Ultimate on my previous PC laptop and my desktop. Just forget about the book said this said that.

What is an OEM os ? an individual software licence with an assembled computer system Does it not mean one ?

You can reactivate as because it is registered to the HARDWARE ID not user ID

Finally, you think you can still sell it after everyone comment ? Where else you think you can sell this OEM ? Ebay has banned it, when you try to sell in CEX, they will ask for it to be new and sealed. So you try on HUKD here ?

You definitely cannot install in two machines at the same time as you tried to do.

The software distribution licence I quoted above is clearly printed on the case of the DVD so unless you have anything else to add (definition of Hardware ID for example with a valid link from Microsoft) I would suggest you keep ONE licence per PC.
