I am thinking about buying Vista ultimate edition which is costing me way less than as an OEM than a retail boxed software. The thing is it really is not a very plausible option for me to dish out £300+ on a new retail boxed one. WHat are the coplications around it. I know it probly will mean i ll have to do a clean install for it to work properly. But then after that what are the limitations on it as in updating the system or in case i do a system hardware upgrade or change etc, would that be a problem given that i have an OEM version. Cos obviously I might think about getting a better drive in teh future and some other upgrades buyt would this cause a problem for me?
I am saving a lot of money if i do buy one as OEm than the boxed off the shelf version. DO enlighten me guys as I want to be fully sure about everything if i do take this step. THrow in any and every problem you can think of. Would it mean that if i do a hardware upgrade i ll have to reformat and do a clean install to avoid troubles.
Your help would be highly appreciated.
