    Hi

    I'm an IT professional providing remote support to clients over a number of remote Audio interface PC systems built by me. These remote servers were built using XP Pro OEM discs. Due to Dropbox and Google Chrome ceasing support for XP I now find myself in the unfortunate position of having to upgrade all these systems. I'm trying to upgrade them all to Windows 7 Pro as this allows Microsoft Remote Desktop Server. As the systems were originally built using OEM can I use OEM Windows 7 discs ?

    You should save yourself some future headache and seriously check compatibility with your software on Windows 10 or you're just going to run into the same issue in a few more years!

    The bigger issue here is going to be the hardware......as outdated as the OS is....upgrading to 7 may never work do to the old hardware.....meaning no driver support.
