License issues. . .

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Tony Sperling, May 15, 2006.

  1. Hi!

    The time is drawing closer to a lot of new development in technology and I
    need to make plans for this. [ If ?] I want to sell off this machine with
    the current system (x64) freshly installed, will I need to specifically
    un-register in order for the new owner to register it? It is after all an
    OEM version and should follow the machine, right?

  2. Follows the machine. And "registration" has nothing to do with licensing.
    they're two separate issues.

    But remember, you are the system builder and responsible for OEM support.
    :) Have fun with the calls for driver and non-install issues unless you
    give them a copy of Charlie's whitepaper and make sure they know the
    downside, too.

  6. Sure, John! I am a decent and fair trader - I take on all responsibilities
    and move to an unknown location!

  7. Ah, yes of course, but will MS's servers develop immidiate amnesia if
    someone else fills in the form all of a suddy?

  8. No, hardly. Seriously, the license is with the machine. And stays with it.
    And for these purposes, the "machine" is defined as the motherboard. Swap
    that out, and you've changed the machine. Unless, of course, the mobo is
    swapped under warranty.

  10. O.K. So this means that the registration has no 'weight' on it's own, that
    is just a confirmation of who ever is in possesion of the machine, ( and
    hence, the license? )

    I decidedly do not want to sound as though splitting hairs, but I had
    expected the reg. to have some importance with the matter.

    Thanks.

    Tony. . .

  11. The registration has zero weight for anything. I never register my machines.
    I think registration is more for MS's internal marketing and segment
    identification needs, frankly.

  12. I have X64 build 5384 and the registration page just hangs. That is, none of
    the link points work. So I cannot register anyway. What happens when the
    registration date countdown gets to zero?
