Re: [NTO] OEM Win2k
- Hi Ray,
> Gateway. Are OEM versions of the operating system manufacturer-specific?I wouldn't do it. I just got through with problems with IBM OEM Win2k
and when you install, it is installing all the IBM drivers and doesn't
give you the option to set up the drive partitions like you would be
able to do if you bought your own copy of Win2k. Also, when repairs are
necessary you can't follow the usual Win2k recovery procedures because
you don't have a 'normal' CD to recover from. Yeah, you buy a license
from Microsoft but you don't get full functionality!

Thanks loads for your help. This whole idea looks too risky to try. You
may have saved me a lot of grief!
