    win xp, can i use same disk2 install?

    i hav windows xp cd because it came with my laptop, does this mean that i cannot install it onto my new pc as well? i want to install it into new rig, but it will ask me 2 register within 30 days, would i be breaking any laws?

    technically, you would be violating the terms of the user agreement. each copy of XP can only be installed on one PC.

    however, there is nothing to stop you from calling MS and telling them that you need a new activation key because you had to reformat your hard disk due to a virus.

    i have sigs turned off so i can't see your specs....

    good luck with your build however!

    you may not need to call MS for a new key unless the online activation doesn't work.
