license question, OEM vs not OEM


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have two XP Pro CDs here, both are legit with their own keys. One is my own, it is an OEM. The other one is from my office, it is a boxed retail XP. I bought the OEM in a store here with a hard disc and memory (apparently, that is legal in Japan - In Germany you can even buy "System Builder Editions" even without hardware I think).

I used the CD from my office to create a new installation disc (with nLite). I did this because I think it was a newer source which required less slipstreaming.

Well can I use now my OEM-key on that CD? Both are XP Pro (none is Corp License or anything).

Or is there actually also a license difference in the key that it won't work?

thks for any quick help!
