System Builder: Replacing that OEM COA

For those of us that are OEM System Builders we can request a replacement COA label if the original one was damaged beyond recognition or the case it was affixed to needed to be replaced.

We just replaced a case for a client that has an integrated power supply. So, we needed to apply for a replacement COA.

When we did so the result was:


So, we sent an e-mail off to the address with all of the relevant information. Hopefully we get word back.

In this case the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 OEM software package was purchased through legitimate distribution channels here in Canada. And we are the system builders. :)
