I run Win XP Home but I do not possess a CD for it - it was installed by a friend! I was searching on Google to see if there were any such CDs for sale but most seem to be OEM versions whatever that may mean. Does anyone know a reliable site where I could purchase a full version CD at an economical price? Thanks in advance.
Do you know if your licence/product key is Retail or OEM?
You can tell quite easily, by right-clicking your desktop 'My Computer' icon & choosing Properties. In the System Properties applet that opens, check the Product ID code under 'Registered to:' If the 2nd string of characters has 'OEM' in it, then it's OEM. If not, it can be Retail or Academic. G
