Vista OEM - Locked to what
Dear All

I have an OEM version of Vista Home Premium 32bit and unfortunatly I may
have to replace my motherboard already. Can you tell me whether the OEM
version is locked to the Processor or the Motherboard etc. Obviously if its
the motherboard i will have to purchase another copy of Vista

Many Thanks

Tom

RE: Vista OEM - Locked to what
"A Microsoft representative confirmed that users may buy an OEM copy of
Windows Vista at a substantial discount, provided they adhere to the terms of
the license - which, incidentally, may mean providing support for family
members. In addition, users should still be subject to the same familiar
re-activation restrictions as users of a retail Vista license and Windows XP,
a spokeswoman said. Users can alter the PC's hardware substantially, but they
will be forced to reactivate - not repurchase the OEM software - if they do,
she said."

HOPE THAT THIS IS TRUE!
