  1. Dear Sir: The OEM Version license that you got with “the new Box” is only valid when being run on “the new box” it is a wierd deal and if you went to the store and bought a new retail OS that license would be good for any box you put it on. But the OEM version of the license is tied to the mother board on which it arrives.

    It is a pain in unmentionable places but it is the way the license agreements are written.
