Thanks.
The main difference is that a retail contain X86 + X64. A retail can also be installed multiple time on 1 computer. The OEM is supose not to work when hardware swaping and re-installing but it have work great for almost every one here so...the worst is taht you have to call MS to say yo I changed hardware need to re-install plz activate. So not a big deal.
