Ian Posted June 30, 2019 Share Posted June 30, 2019 My main PC is a desktop running Linux, but beside it I have a laptop which came with W10 - sometimes I need to use Windows. I have finally decided I want to get rid of W10 and install W8.I have a W8 recovery DVD, which I made for an earlier laptop - I used an app called "Media Creater". I had hoped to use this, but someone told me that an OEM copy of any (recent) Windows OS will only run on the original HW - it is not transferable. Can anyone confirm this?If it's true, can I still buy a licence for W8?Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
