    I've read some of the old threads, and it seems many people have had no problem installing an OEM version of Windows Vista. Has anyone ever had an issue activating it? I'm talking about buying a new OEM license and keeping it on one machine. As I understand it, although it wasn't intended to be purchased by end users, Microsoft has said it would be legal as long as I provide tech support to myself.

    You should have no problems with Vista OEM. OEM editions of Windows can by used in many cases including when you have made a significant upgrade to a machine. The support provided is not affected buy the license type.
