I have two Windows 7 Professional discs with the following sentence on them:

Quote:
Intended for distribution with a refurbished PC.


Is it safe to say that the discs basically contain the OEM version?

It is probably the same as the OEM version as far as the code is concerned, but not the licensing. Unfortunately the license would only be valid when supplied with a PC from a Registered Refurbisher. I don't believe those licenses are transferable. See the licensing guide here for more information: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... FY14Q2.pdf

In otherwords while you could certainly use it, I don't believe Microsoft would consider it "legal". Scott.

Scott, check out this ended eBay listing. Go to the boxed section that begins with "UP FOR SALE:" and read what it says. I have the same kind of discs that were advertised in the listing.

What would that tell us that we don't already know? Scott.
