Is this the USA equivalent to the window7?
This is a OEM version of the OS which is no different then a retail version with the exception of the following.
It has none of the books, pamphlets or instructions
It is just the cd but has he same exact OS as the retail.
Usually on a OEM version once it is installed it is married to that system. If you change a main component of that system you will have to reactivate the OS.

If you ever fancy upgrading your board even though there is nothing wrong with the one you have then you will have to buy a new OEM System Builder disk as MS view this then as a "New Computer".
However if the board fails and you replace it then notify MS and tell them what happened they will reactivate the system.

Also I want to update this. The hdd seems to be working now. Since I loaded Linux on it, I have been able to shut down and restart. Also I looked at the partitions and I have to other partitions which is supposed to be where the gateway backups are.
