    Default OEM versions of Windows Vista

    Does anyone know of any problems that may occur when purchasing oem software, in particular concerning Windows Vista? I am looking into buying a copy of home premium off either playtech.co.nz or ascent.co.nz, as I have delt with both before, and both were excellent.

    And you can't transfer the license for OEM Vista to another computer, like you can with the retail versions.

    I just rebuilt a PC (new mobo and processor, more memory, same HDD) and reinstalled OEM Vista no problem.
