I was wondering if I bought the home upgrade if i could use my OEM copy xp pro as the previous copy. it being oem and all
I'm fairly confident that your OEM copy will count, since most consumers who buy their PC's instead of building them will have OEM copies of XP preinstalled from the manufacture. MS would be silly and stupid to disqualify them from upgrading to vista. However, I could be wrong.... they might be counting on those people being willing to spend on money on a full retail copy and not an upgrade.I was wondering if I bought the home upgrade if i could use my OEM copy xp pro as the previous copy. it being oem and all
ED, he is saying he has an OEM copy of XP but he wants to buy a retail upgrade copy of Vista, not a OEM copy of Vista (the ones that are available now at various online etailers).or.... you could just wait till vista is released and buy that retail.
