    I heard OEM vista has manufacture digital certificate built-in in the CD for activation purpose. Does all the manufacture has the same certificate, or them are different. My friend lost his OEM CD, and trying borrow mine. But we have different brand laptop.



    Thanks.

    The OEM version you're talking about is not available for purchase. It is provided by MS to the large suppliers directly. The OEM version you can buy is not the same thing. If you bought a generic OEM DVD, it will work on any machine -- except those that come preinstalled. In those cases, only the vendor-installed image won't work.
