5.0 out of 5 stars Just make sure you understand... June 7, 2011

This is OEM which means the difference is that this version locks itself to a single motherboard. As long as you run the same system your golden, but when you upgrade you will have to purchase another copy.

1.0 out of 5 stars CAUTION! December 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Old Standard Packaging
This is the exact same version of Operating Systems that come pre-installed by all system manufacturers and I am writing this review to both caution and make everyone aware about an apparent change to the Microsoft EULA (End-User License Agreement) concerning the Activation process of these "System Builder" or "OEM pre-installed" versions of the Windows 7 Operating Systems (the capped portion was never a condition for previous versions of Windows Operating Systems, which USED TO be tied ONLY to the system's motherboard through the BIOS) and which states:

"Activation associates the use of the software with a specific computer. During activation, the software will send information about the software and the computer to Microsoft. This information includes the version, language and product key of the software, the Internet protocol address of the computer, and INFORMATION DERIVED FROM THE HARDWARE CONFIGURATION OF THE COMPUTER." - Section 4, Mandatory Validation.

This means that it is NO LONGER just tied to the system's motherboard (BIOS) as is still popularly believed, but now to ALL hardware components and their exact configuration (including unique serial numbers where applicable) of the target computer on which all OEM or "System Builder" versions of the Windows Operating System in question that is to be tied to them.

Just recently, my Acer Notebook's IDE 0 (Master) hard disk decided to fail on me after just 1 year and 8 months, and of course outside of the warranty period. So I replaced it not knowing of the aforementioned condition of the pre-installed EULA of this product which would BREAK my completely legal and fully purchased version of the pre-installed Operating System the very second I swapped the failing and the new functioning hard drives.

Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
This couldn't be easier for a new system build. This is the same version & license that you get from any computer manufacturer or the local computer shop if anyone builds your PC. You are no more or less limited in functionality, hardware flexibility, or anything except who supports you compared to a computer bought from anyone else. For a new system build, you can ignore all the language about using a special machine prep tool (for vendors to customize the Windows install such as with links for support and their own software add-ons). Just put the disk in, start the new computer, and it should install. After all, this is the backup disc a local shop would just give the user for them in case they ever have to reinstall after a system failure. It should automatically register the next time it gets an internet connection. I had no problems at all.

SCARY WORDS ON PACKAGE
When the package arrives, you will notice some scary wording on it that says this is for system builders only for machines to be sold to another party. It also says you must use some other tool to do the install. But I had no issue just installing directly without doing anything but popping this disc in. So be aware of what the license means and decide if you want to proceed or not. Basically, Microsoft is factoring in supports costs if they have to help you at all. So they offer two versions, one with support (retail) and one without (OEM). Computer vendors have their own separate support contract with Microsoft and can buy the OEM versions without support and instead offer their own support. Microsoft is just making sure you are going to be happy and using strong language to ensure someone is going to cover you if you have a software problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Macbook Pro & Parallels April 21, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
This was the most affordable Windows 7 that I found that I can use to install on my Macbook Pro through Parallels 6. At first I was debating on going with the 64bit or the 32bit, because some software do not work on 64bit. I ended up going with 64bit -- those non-compatible software should update, not me.

Using Windows 7 on a Mac is awesome. Best of both worlds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 Home (Builders Edition) July 20, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
I wrote an earlier set of comments on Windows 7 Home OEM Builders Edition, but later discovered several errors in my facts.
This is my final, and hopefully accurate, assessment.

I gather there are four differences between the OEM version and retail, here they are:

1: You can only choose one version, 32-bit or 64-bit, but will not receive both discs, as in the retail version.
2: You can only install on one system. The OS is "married" to the motherboard and cannot be transferred to another computer.
3: You can NOT install later upgrades, such as the soon to be released Windows 8.
4: You will be entitled to updates and KB bulletins, but not phone or e-mail support for problems.

I am not 100% sure about the upgrade option, but the other facts are apparently correct.
As for me, the OEM restrictions are acceptable. Many customers are reporting problem free installations. A good sign.

I hope this final update helps.

Update (January 5th, 2014) : This is my second copy of Windows 7 Home Premium OEM. I just ordered it for myself as a Christmas present. Here's an important warning: For some reason, Microsoft has changed the Product Key from an easily read label to an almost illegible one. It's only about 6 by 15 millimeters. The printing is tiny, tiny, tiny. Even with a magnifying glass (which you MUST have), I spent nearly 20 minutes deciphering just 25 characters. Picture reading the mint (not just the date), on an old, warn dime. THATS how hard it is to read. It didn't help that three of them are apparently the letter D which at this scale looks almost identical to an O. Further, Microsoft now uses a background of alternating turquoise, orange, and dark blue areas with random "squiggle" patterns. I gather this was done to frustrate some kind of machine OCR devices. Unless your eye-sight is excellent, you should consider this product as virtually UNUSABLE.

What is Microsoft thinking?
