    Not legally, I'm afraid. OEM software is only licensed for the machine it comes with.

    As an experienced and helpful Lounger, you are probably already well aware of our Rules. The situation your friend is in - which you have described in this and at least one other thread - is one which attracts sympathy. Unfortunately, what you are now asking is beyond the scope of the Lounge - as it is beyond the spirit - if not the letter of the Rules. I am sorry, but we cannot answer the question you are asking.
