XP Question

  1. If I have a cd with XP on it along with the product key, even if its been installed on another computer, can I still install it on my computer and be safe?

    It won't let you activate it, but you can get around it by calling Microsoft and telling them it is only installed on your PC after a software re-build (Telephone activation)

    No. XP is licensed for only one computer at a time. Any more installations is a violation of this agreement.

    Yes, it is a violation of the EULA agreement, but that is not to say you can still do it.
    Don't do it though ... it is wrong! ;) :blackeye: :dead:
