  • Windows Home Server on NewEgg

    Windows Home Server on Amazon

    Windows Home Server on Directron

    In other words, every online vendor names the product a little differently. You can also try before you buy. Visit the Windows Home Server section of the Microsoft site and click the Try it free link. You'll have 30 days to evaluate it and decide if you want to buy it or not.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Hi Ken,

    Thanks for your response. what is OEM? Can I buy OEM and install in assembled PC?

  • OEM generally means its for system builders. Microsoft provides no support, it is up to the system builder to provide such support.

    Yes you can install on your assembled PC.
