OEM or Upgrader Version for First Time Build? I am not a computer science major, but maybe a bit of a geek, and I decided to build my own PC (first time). I can download Windows 7 Pro 64 bit Upgrade from the university, but since I am starting from an empty box, I am not sure this will work. Do I need this OEM version? Thanks for your help.
Keep in mind if your rig goes, so does your license if it's OEM. I just had the dreaded AMIBIOS 10 Beep Error Code come up, and had my license been OEM (since it was the mobo), that would have been that.
