Bought an unnecessary Windows 7 home premium 64bit OEM

Recently bought parts for a gaming pc and built it, only to find out my friend had a windows 7 ultimate full edition so needless to say I used that. I was going to return it (newegg) but found out I couldn't... what should I do with it?

  1. Just keep it around in case you ever need to switch motherboards or want to dual boot OS's.
  2. "friends win7 ultimate"... Or use the legal OS.
  3. ^ This.

    And hope your pirated copy did not come with a nice keylogger. The only reason to have Ultimate is for Bitlocker, XP mode and automated backups. If you need all that then Ultimate is only about $60 more when buying OEM.
  4. Believe it or not, it is a real copy of windows 7. His family owns a business building servers and computers.
  5. Pirated Copies = Viruses.


    It must mean you have used a pirated copy and know it firsthand
