Microsoft working on new Windows 8 activation protection

Microsoft is preparing a new version of its OEM BIOS activation for use in Windows 8, WinRumors has learned.

The protection allows PC makers and system builders to pre-activate copies of Windows for use on their hardware. OEM BIOS activation (OA) was originally introduced with Windows XP. Microsoft shipped OA version 2.0 with Windows Vista.
