  1. Here's the deal. I have a computer now with XP on it. Im buying new computer parts that someone is gonna put together for me. The old computer I'm gonna put Windows 98SE on that I have had for a while from a old computer for my wife. THEN I'm gonna put the XP I have now on the new computer.

    I have registered this XP twice with M$ becasue I had to do a reformat once. Do you guys know if I'll have a problem (or heard of others having problems) installing and registering it on the new CPU?

    I know for a fact that if you call Tech Support they will say that it is okay as long as you have purchased the copy.

    I have reinstalled 3 times already, and have yet to havea problem. They can reset your copy if you call them.

    I would suggest this instead of using a crack, as you have a legit copy and there is no need for it.

    I'm positive there will not be any problems.

    There should not be a reason for "cracking" it if you have purchased it. If you do, at least have the decency to download the corporate version and not crack it. :x
