He aqui el párrafo de la discordia:
An upgrade of the motherboard is considered to result in a “new personal computer” to which Microsoft® OEM operating system software cannot be transferred from another computer. If the motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new computer has been created and the license of new operating system software is required.”
El motivo? lo podemos leer en el mismo acuerdo de Licencia:
Microsoft needed to have one base component “left standing” that would still define that original PC. Since the motherboard contains the CPU and is the “heart and soul” of the PC, when the motherboard is replaced (for reasons other than defect) a new PC is essentially created.”
viene a decir, que Microsoft sostiene como “base” del PC donde originalmente se instaló el S.O. a la placa base, y si ésta es sustituida, se crea esencialmente un nuevo PC.
Ver para creer…
