More about : upgrade version oem jaguarskx a b $ Windows 7 February 4, 2010 12:29:27 AM I would go with OEM 'cause if for some reason to need to do a reinstall you will need to: 1. Reinstall the old OS 2. Install the upgrade Not sure if "upgrade" requires you to call Microsoft to release the license. I actually would by Retail instead, but that's about $180 - $190. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Different versions? Upgrade vs OEM vs Home ? HELP!!!
