Do you know what version for new rig ?

I asked yesterday and a guy said I need windows 7 full addition on a new rig without any operating system or it won't work .

My friend building th pc said no you don't need that. You can get a 64 bit OEM but you can only get windows 7 64 bit OEM if you buy a certain computer part.

    Yes. Once installed, it is all the same.

    And to reinforce the earlier reply: (from the Amazon link, emphasis mine)
    "This OEM Windows product IS NOT an upgrade product. This Windows product does not come with Microsoft support and requires a clean install, which is complicated and will not save anything currently on the computer"

    "OEM is not intended for consumers to directly upgrade from older Windows Operating Systems. It will require a clean installation and so all prior data must be backed up."
  6. Ok which is fine since all my parts will be brand new. What yiur saying us this is what yiu get for a new computer and it will erase everything that was on the computer if it isn't brand new.

  8. Is this the only windows 7 version that will work ?
  9. For a new rig, in my circumstances.

    It's pretty much the only one you can buy, as far as Retail vs OEM.

    The only differences you could buy would be Home Premium vs Professional, etc. For Win 7, OEM no matter what.

  12. Excellent. Good luck.
