Just bought a Greenline refurbished PC, it has a "Windows 7 Pro Refurbished PC" COA sticker, I can't find much info about this but would I be correct in assuming it would be a non-transferable license.

Hi :) 

Yes you are correct, think of it like an OEM licence...

Its a special deal that MS gives to companies that rebuild old pcs...

So, no you cannot use it on another machine..

All the best Brett :)

No machine is fine, will be running Server 2012 for a study lab, will just have to use the 7 Enterprise evaluation as the client.

Hi :) 

Ah I see, i was just curious about how good the machine was.... it HAS to be a refurb to get that licence ?

All the best Brett :)

Seems good to me, its a small form factor HP C2D-E6550 4GB 160HDD DVD-ROM 4/5 yrs old at a guess - £185 with a 12 month warranty. Probably image the drive before I put 2012 on it then put 7 back on and sell when I'm finished.

Hi :) 

Thanks, interesting...I am in the UK as well and don't know many companies using the refurb licence (mine doesn't)

All the best Brett :)
