    That was the end user EULA for pre install OEM Windows 8. It's just that the title is not as clear as it should be.

    Thank you for choosing a computer preinstalled with Microsoft Windows 8. This is a license agreement between you and the computer manufacturer or software installer that distributes the Windows 8 software with the computer. This agreement describes your rights to use the Windows 8 software.......

    Downside: Uh oh! Looks like I'm stuck with it on my backup machine! Even so, with SSD SATA3 HD and i52400 CPU and plenty of RAM, it's quite adequate and runs very fast.
    You're most welcome.

    Here is the link to the OEM-System Builder Personal Use License which allows for transfer to another system.

    https://www.eightforums.com/general-d...tml#post129488

    How can I use the software? We do not sell our software or your copy of it we only license it. Under our license, we grant you the right to install and run that one copy on one computer (the licensed computer) as the operating system on a computer that you build for your personal use, or as an additional operating system running on a local virtual machine or a separate partition, subject to the restrictions outlined under Are there things Im not allowed to do with the software? The license is only for use by one person at a time, and only if you comply with all the terms of this agreement. The software is not licensed to be used as server software or for commercial hosting - so you may not make the software available for simultaneous use by multiple users over a network. For more information on multiple user scenarios and virtualization, see the Additional Terms.
    As a hobbyist you can transfer the OEM/System Builder version to any PC you own.


    Can I transfer the software to another computer or user? You may transfer the software to another computer that belongs to you. You may also transfer the software (together with the license) to a computer owned by someone else if a) you are the first licensed user of the software and b) the new user agrees to the terms of this agreement. To make that transfer, you must transfer the original media, the certificate of authenticity, the product key and the proof of purchase directly to that other person, without retaining any copies of the software. You may use the backup copy we allow you to make or the media that the software came on to transfer the software. Anytime you transfer the software to a new computer, you must remove the software from the prior computer. You may not transfer the software to share licenses between computers. You may transfer Get Genuine Windows software, Pro Pack or Media Center Pack software only together with the licensed computer.
    UPDATE: on the top right of that page you can select other version and other language.

    More specifically, you can transfer the OEM/System Builder version *IF* you purchased the software directly. If you buy a computer with the OEM software already on it, then you cannot transfer it, even if you're a hobbyist.

    Just wanted to make sure that was clear.

    OK I just purchased W8 Pro OEM disc from a computer shop and installed it on my own personal computer. Do I come under the category of System Builder product - Personal user license?

    @theog. Yes I have opened the link, and understand the ability to transfer to another machine.

    What I wasn't sure about was whether you need to be a licensed Microsoft system builder to buy the OEM disc from a computer shop and build your own machine and use this license?

    YES that license is for the Hobbyist or home builder for his personal use.

    Thank you very much Jim. That sets my mind at rest. It's important to me, because I have loaded Win8 on my backup machine, but if everything tests out OK, intend to transfer it to my main machine in a month or so as my primary OS.

    One final question. When the relevant EULA agreement is opened via the link you posted, it has boxes to fill in showing your name, email addresss, and a box to tick showing you accept the licence agreement.

    In my situation where I purchased an unopened, brand new DVD of Win8 Pro OEM, at a retail computer shop, is it compulsory to fill those boxes in on the EULA agreement online to registger? I've already activated it online, and wasn't prompted to provide name & email address when installing. However, as per normal, pressed F8 key to accept the licence agreement.

Solved Am I breaking the Windows EULA? in Windows Updates & Activation
I've installed Windows 8 Pro (full version, not upgrade) in a vm to see how it works. I've then installed it to the harddrive using the same product key on the same computer. The second installation (on the harddrive) is now flagged as not activated. Did I break the EULA?
Where do I find the EULA on the Windows 8 Pro installation disc and how do I read it? I am very specific on this. I want to read it from the installation disc on any opttical drive ( not during installation when be blindly tick "I agree" :D ).
