XP Pro RETAIL - product code & COA sticker

  GaT7 17:28 07 Mar 2008

Can someone be kind enough to let me know ALL the places where the product code & COA sticker is situated on a XP Pro RETAIL product?

Also, if it's ONLY on the OUTER box, then selling it as a retail product (even at a reduced price) is illegal isn't it? Ta, G

I don't think it is shown on the Outer box - I think it is only on the enclosed sealed software/paper work and/or the actual PC - should be on top, side or back.

Though I may be wrong about the box, I have never bought one that was boxed.

Mine was in a plastic DVD case not a box and the code was inside not outside. This I assume is to stop people stealing the codes as they could if it was visable without opening the box.
Mines OEM however so perhaps a full version is different?
