    MS Windows licensing query

    In the past (before I started here), any new machines purchased at the school have come with OEM copies of XP. I personally can't be bothered to deal with separate license keys for each machine, and want some kind of volume licensing. That way I can configure one station, and blast it out to the rest.

    Whenever we've needed new copies of Office (despite my best efforts to go down the OpenOffice route), we've placed an order with Viglen for the number of licenses that we require, and then receive the confirmation of payment for the licenses, plus a license key to use.

    What I'm wondering is, is there a way to do something like this for Windows?

    If you are a school then you have a few options - probably either Select or Schools Agreement would suit best.
    This would be a good place to start: Microsoft Volume Licensing Home Page

    Schools agreement will only give you a Windows Upgrade, you'll still need OEM stickers (or such) on the side of the machine.
