OS question
« on: May 24, 2012, 08:55:56 AM »
Christ is ascended!

I am working on building a PC and I purchased Windows 7 home professional 64-bit OEM. I have been reading some things about it that make me regret buying it, such as having to repurchase the OS if any of the hardware goes bad. Is this true? Would I be better off with another version? I haven't installed the OS yet (I haven't even broken the seal on the disc case), so returning it shouldn't be a problem if I have to. Looking forward to your help! :)

In Christ,
Andrew
"I will pour out my prayer unto the Lord, and to Him will I proclaim my grief; for with evils my soul is filled, and my life unto hades hath drawn nigh, and like Jonah I will pray: From corruption raise me up, O God." -Ode VI, Irmos of the Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos

You may have to re-activate the Windows 7 license; however, having to repurchase the license is not necessary.

"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus
