Can I Use OEM XP

Hi
I want to build a new PC running XP before it goes completely out of fashion

The only copies available to buy seem to be OEM versions.

I have never used OEM software before and wondered if it it OK to use it for a personal DIY project.

What, if any are the problems?

Thanks

OEM software will be no different from a new boxed version. As Clapton says go for it ! The only proviso is that the licence will only be valid for the machine upon which you install it on.
