Also comes down to whether you've activated it or not if you have then no.

SphinxNZ: Hey just wondering if anyone knows if you can sell a copy of Vista Ultimate 64bit OEM second hand

not unless you sell it with the hardware that it came with...... because its an OEM (original Equipment Manufacturer) version it is only allowed to be sold with a machine as its OS.  As a consumer you're not supposed to be able to buy it as a seperate item.

Yeah i run a computer company as well (doesnt everyone) haha

Yeah i actually bought it with a 400GB hard disk drive, as with OEM it needs to go with hardware and a harddrive allowed me to get it!
