OEM license question

  Thalmus 15:27 30 Jan 2006

I have a computer that has a Dell OEM License of windows 2000. This computer is now dead. Can i transfer this license to another Dell Pc?

No- the oem licence will have been for the original pc, when the pc died the windows 2000 oem licence died with it.

That's the legal position anyway, I don't think the W2000 os had the same validation process as xp has, so you could prob install it, but it wouldn't be a legal copy.

Hope this helps.

Officially no,the license and product was for the computer that it was installed on.
