There is no difference only the price and the fact that your support for XP OEM will come from your supplier and not Microsoft.

I got OEM. Was cheaper by far than a full retail version.

As for support, You have already found the best place to get it, and it is not at a premium rate phone call.

Also many more bods, with more knowledge, giving the support that a bloke in an office (doing his 9 to 5) , running through a fault finding flow chart. (what if thge Fix to your problem is not in the box at the end of his logic tree?)..
