I recently had to replace my motherboard and the
main problem with Windows OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) editions is that you have to reinstall it from scratch. I did read on the net that some official from Microsoft told a reporter that you have to buy another edition of Windows if your operating system is an OEM version. Well I'd already reinstalled my Windows
Pro. from the original CD that came with my computer. It was accepted as genuine at Microsoft when I updated it direct from Microsoft Downloads. So that Microsoft bloke was talking a load of twoddle.
