Help with Microsoft licensing and reselling
Hi there everyone, im hoping someone here can help clear up a problem i have. I am starting to build a few computers to sell to a few friends (and friends of friends) and they all want Windows Xp installed on their machines. I want to do it all legally so does this mean i have to buy the required number of full retail copies or can i buy OEM versions (If i can buy OEM versions could someone please explain the limitations on doing this as I read that i have to buy a piece of hardware or something to be eligible to buy it). And also since i will most probably be purchasing and installing the software does that mean that the license is in my name or does it stick to the computer or person buying it as i will end up giving them the disk in the finished system (for a price).
Sorry if this is a difficult post to comprehend as i dont fully understand what im talking about, which is why i need as much help as I can. (this is all basically so i dont get it to trouble pirating software).
