Get Genuine Kit for Windows® XP Professional

14 Mar

Help your customers get genuine Windows on their existing PCs

The best and most costeffective way for customers to acquire Windows software is preinstalled on a new PC. However, more customers are becoming aware that they are running non-genuine Windows on their PCs. The Get Genuine Kit gives you a cost-effective solution to help them get legal, deepen your customer relationship, and be there as a trusted advisor.

The Get Genuine Kit is only available for use on fully assembled PCs with a previously installed counterfeit, pirated, or otherwise illegal or unlicensed copy of Windows XP Professional software.

The Problem: How to provide genuine Windows on a PC when customers have acquired non-genuine Windows XP Professional.

The Solution: The new Get Genuine Kit for Windows XP Professional. This Get Genuine Kit is designed for use on fully assembled PCs with a previously installed counterfeit, pirated, or otherwise illegal or unlicensed copy of Windows XP Professional software.

How It Works:

Acquire the Get Genuine Kit from an authorized Microsoft® OEM distributor. Affi x, or instruct the end-user to affi x, the enclosed certifi cate of authenticity (COA) label to the PC. Microsoft recommends, but does not require, that on the end user’s computer system you either:

Run the Windows Product Key Update Tool

Perform a re-install of Windows XP

Perform a clean install of Windows XP

Either you or the end customer must do one of these things in order to receive updates, upgrades,

and support services.

Other Facts:

The Get Genuine Kit is available from an authorized Microsoft OEM Distributor in packs of 1 or 10.

License Pack contains

1 1 COA label, 1 media, and 1 end user license agreement (EULA)

10 10 COA labels, 1 media, and 1 EULA

10-packs must be used for a single customer and must not be divided among multiple customers.

Bits are similar to full packaged product bits in that they will not wipe clean the hard drive upon installation. Microsoft provides product support for the Get Genuine Kit. This differs from OEM system builder software which the PC Manufacturer supports. The license is NOT transferable to another PC.
