    Default Using OEM Serial for Retail of Windows 8

    Hi guys,

    Recently, I;m wondering whether I will be able to use my OEM Windows 8 Home Premium serial number to do a clean installation and use the serial on a retail copy of the same version? If it is possible, can you show me the steps?

    Many thanks!

    No I am sorry but retail and OEM use different serial numbers. Think about it, if they did not why would anyone pay more for full retail.

    Right?
