If your selling PC's, most people will want nothing but windows. If you buy corporate copys of windows, it will just cost more in the long run as well, just pickup copys of Vista home premium.

ace777 my friend i have a legal and cheap way for you to be successful, i have a serial number given to me by my local school it is a coorporate serial no. and will work with any windows XP SP2 disk image (i have one if youd like) this is legal as i have written consent from my school to use the serial number as i told them my interest in pc's and said that i maybe building computers and stuff.

and as the school are all for young people going into business etc they gave me permission to use there serial no. if your interested let me know.

again as this is perfectly legal all updates etc install without a hitch

No this is not legal, you cannot resell their license...

In the eyes of the law, both you guys would be prosecuted for copyright infringement... Your breaking it about a thousand different ways.

Also the school didn't buy a license to use unlimited copy's, they bought a license to use a certain amount of copy's. Their are not unlimited use as much as you want legally licenses.
