I'm building a couple of Windows 7 computers for friends. I'm a little intimidated by MS website licensing info posted regarding requirement of OPK to load the OS. I've used OEM discs several times in the past on XP builds, but they say it's different with Windows 7. Can I buy 2 OEM discs and load 7 on the two respective computers in the usual way and not have any activation problems?

Hi :) 

Because I own Computers shops and I actually AM an OEM...

That OEM VERSION was intended for builders like me to make a little extra profit....

Unfortunately everyone uses them now :( 

All the best Brett :)

We're actually in a similar situation. I'm looking for a little extra money as well, (as I've done with past XP builds). I just can't afford to own shops :)
