What is an OEM file?

OEM is an acronym for Original Equipment Manufacturer. Files that contain the .oem file extension are most commonly associated with the Windows operating system Original Equipment Manufacturer files. These files are often distributed by second parties and are used during the text-mode setup of the Windows system and when a user installs drivers for devices that are connected to a Windows-based computer.

OEM files contain a list of hardware components and registry keys that are used on the computer. The information stored within these files is required to booth the user's machine. Without the proper OEM files, the user's machine will not boot properly.
