    Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit installation from OEM cd.


    Hello everybody !

    I assembled my computer. I bought all parts separately and they (clerks in store) sold me an DVD with windows 8.1 OEM. But I couldn't install it.

    Few years ago when I got an DVD like this, but with WinXP I could install it. Can someone help me to solve the problem ?

    Did they sell you a full retail or upgrade disk ?

    My factory disks were 5 or 6 in number.
