I have a potential problem here.
I have 2 XP cd's (laptop and desktop) neither of which are in their product code envelopes.
Now if I should ever have to reinstall XP in the desktop....
How do I figure out which is the correct cd?
I don't feel like crawling behind the desktop right now but there should be a sticker on the back with the product code. Is there a way to 'read' the cd's to see what code is in them?
Then I can ditch the other cd (laptop is getting ubuntu installed) and put it in an envelope with a copy of the product code.
When I put a new HD in I reinstalled XP and it didn't even ask for a code.
But it probably will now that I have misplaced it.
