Hey all. I recently bought Windows 10 for my newly built PC. I got it from Best Buy for $125. I did this to save time on shipping, but I didn’t realize at the time I got them Retail version instead of OEM.
I’ve done my best to educate myself and it sounds like even the OEM version license can be transferred to a new motherboard. I don’t have a working DVD drive and the Retail version has USB install. I know the OEM aversion doesn’t.
I haven’t installed the OS yet. But I’m leaning towards just keeping the Retail version instead of returning it to order the OEM version online.
Just wanted some input on this. Any opinions? Shed some light on this? Can the OEM version be purchased at a store?
