jonnytabpni Posted December 31, 2007 Share Posted December 31, 2007 Hey guys/gals, I currently run a small IT business. There is a customer who has messed up their XP on their PC, and they don't have a XP sticker (for the sake of argument, lets just presume it's illegial). Am I allowed to install an OEM version of XP home on their pc?? I know OEM licence's are only for system builders,refurbishers etc... and I was wondering if this would be classed as system refurbishment even though i'm not seling them the computer (as they already own it!). It also has to be "distributed" with a fully assembled computer system, it doesn't say sold. I'm just concerned weather or not giving a customer their computer back falls under this... "We grant you the non-exclusive right to distribute an indivudal software licence with a fully assembled computer system" "Distribution and Distrubute means the point in time when a fully assembled computer systemleaves the control of the system builder" - its doesn't say SOLD. Also: it defines system builder as: "An OEM,manufacturer,an assembler,refurbisher, or pre-installer of software on computer systems" Cheers Jonny Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
