The best and most cost-effective way for customers to acquire Windows software is preinstalled on a new PC. However, more customers are becoming aware that they are running non-genuine Windows on their PCs. The Get Genuine Kit gives you a cost-effective solution to help them get legal, deepen your customer relationship, and be there as a trusted advisor.
How It Works:
Acquire the Get Genuine Kit from an authorized Microsoft® OEM distributor.
Affix, or instruct the end-user to affix, the enclosed certificate of authenticity (COA) label to the PC.
Microsoft recommends, but does not require, that on the end user's computer system you either:
Run the Windows Product Key Update Tool
Perform a re-install of Windows XP
Perform a clean install of Windows XP
Either you or the end customer must do one of these things in order to receive updates, upgrades, and support services.
The Get Genuine Kit is available from an authorized Microsoft OEM distributor in packs of 1 or 10.
1 license pack contains: 1 COA label, 1 media and 1 end user license agreement (EULA)
10 license pack contains: 10 COA labels,1 media and 1 EULA
10-packs must be used for a single customer and must not be divided among multiple customers.
Bits are similar to full packaged product bits in that they will not wipe clean the hard drive upon installation.
Microsoft provides product support for this Kit. This differs from OEM system builder software which the PC Manufacturer supports.
The license is NOT transferable to another PC.
