OEM Sytem builders license

Can someone please explain to me after I have been building Personal Pc's for over 5 years now:

Is it a necessity to have the OEM builders license to install a operating system on a personal computer for a friend.  I would like to buy him the oem version of Window 7 home premium? Any additional thougth would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks

I think you have to build at least a part of the PC.
Otherwise you would need the normal (unused) OEM license.

I have ordered all parts of the pc to be put together, and all of these pieces were purchased seperately which means I will be building all of the pc.  Are you suggesting something otherwise?
I have all the parts sitting here waiting on as OS and I just happen to notice this statement on the OEM version of the software and surely need to make sure before I spend his money on something that will be no good one day!!!!

Thanks always,

bbbb2--I am not suggesting anything, but I gave you two references to describe the procedure according to Microsoft.  Here is another reference which may provide more insight.

You absolutely are a system builder and also making sure a license is being purchased.
