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

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

"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
