I have question regarding purchasing SA for OEM hardware that comes with Windows 7 Professional COA. can it be done?
I already have an OPen Charity agreement and we are looking at purchasing a large amount of small form factor PC’s. All will have windows 7 COA with it.

Hi Jim,Absolutly, you have 90days to add SA to any qualifying Windows desktop OEM license, clock starts ticking when you buy the OEM machines, if you qualify for charity or gov, make sure to inform the reseller

Very helpful site, thank you! I was wondering if you might know something about Windows OS licensing? I just started at a company where, for what I think is a incorrect reason, is using 2008R2 Datacenter edition as the standard OS for all virtual servers. The license agreement with Microsoft is Select or maybe Select Plus, I am not positive but I know it is not the Enterprise license. They believe that they can ran all the Datacenter virtual machines they want under the license, but the hosts for the virtual machines are running VMWare. I am thinking that the DC license covers VMs running on the DC server, and if we spin up a bunch of individual VM’s running Datacenter edition versus Enterprise or Standard that the DC licenses cost more than Enterprise or Standard licenses where those will do on certain servers. Does the DC version cost significantly more than the other versions? We aren’t using lots of CPU’s or memory, so DC is wasted on that account.Thank you!!
