So i bought Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64 Bit System Builder OEM | PC Disc from amazon. Idk why i bought it but i did and was wondering what does "system builder OEM means" This is my new gaming PC that i am building and was wondering if i should return this windows 10 and get maybe windows 7 or 8??? Is this a bootleg windows 10?? There is a lot of bad reviews and i don't wanna ruin my computer. Sorry for my lack of knowledge, I'm new to all this. Any feedback would be great!! Thanks

System builder installs are meant for people who build computers and sell them. A system builder OEM license ties to the motherboard, meaning if you upgrade your mobo at one point, you won't be able to use the same license.

A bit more information. So it's not a bootleg copy, but limits future upgradability a bit imo.
