    hi I work for a charity call Jamie's computers and need some help, the boss has asked if we can offer recovery disks with the computers we sell so that the user can install the os and software we put on, Not the repair thing as that does not do it also the software must be. e.g. restore disks you get with new computers

    Chris, you can sell the computer with original OS as long as it has OEM:COA label, You cannot sell the system with third party recovery media only original recovery media is allowed (if it was supplied) and as a company you would be breaking Microsoft Eula.
