oem license and cloning issue

Posted: 12-31-2008, 02:04 AM
to whom it may concern,

I have 20 oem identical windows xp pc in the department and would like to
deploy a standard image on them. Can I just configure 1 of the pc and clone
the image to the remaining pc with its own oem license key, is the oem
license still valid under this case?

thanks a lot.

I believe it is not. Maybe others will have different answers or know this as a fact

OEM installations from major manufacturers like HP, Dell, Lenovo etc.
are preactivated using a single product activation key from the CD (and
not the key from the COA). In that case deploying an image wouldn't be
any different from installing each of them using the CD.

If you have 20 PCs in one department, this would be the 'classic" case
for getting a Volume License version.
