Iv`e got Windows ME system restore discs that used to be on my PC. If I give them to a friend to install on his PC (a) Will They install? and (b) Is this legal, bearing in mind that he will have the correct Key and the authentification label? and finally (c) If he tries to use the disc what is the worst that can happen? Your help and expertise will be most appreciated.
Firstly I`m not using it at all. I`ve got Win XP Pro SP2 safely installed. To 961, my last question was asked , not from a moralistic point of view but from a technical point of view. I`ll review my wording by asking : " is it likely to have a deleterious effect on my friends computer?"
I dont think bill gates will go bankrupt for old software being transferred to another pc thats no longer in use, oem or not. oem is a farce anyway, look how many web sites are openly selling oem and microsoft does nothing. I think oem should be stopped by MS, dell get oem windows for next to nothing while smaller computer manufacturers have to pay a lot more. It should be one price for everyone.
