    Yes, it should work. This is a "retail" version of the OS, and not OEM, so it should work a number of times (possibly 2-3). Older installations simply deactivate themselves once they contact Microsoft servers. To be sure, check with Computer Source, as they sell genuine Windows.

    If your friend is trustworthy then there's no problem. Simply get the disc from him, install, update, then reboot. Then if all is well, pay him. It's as good as new, so even if he sells you at full price it's worth it. He's your friend, so help him.

    If he's selling to a stranger then tell the stranger to see http://pcsupport.about.com/od/window...nstall-faq.htm and/or visit any Computer Source showroom and confirm that there's no problem with reusing the disc as long as one system is installed at a time.

    You may also tell him to sell online 500-1000tk less (ClickBD, Cellbazaar, Bikroy, OLX) and put the disc in its original packaging. He should state that it's new but opened (tray item), don't mention anything else as it's not relevant (he used it once, but actually there's no limit to how many times you can reactivate).

    Microsoft has not released any "ORGINAL" version of Windows 8 yet.
