Hi,

I am in the process of building my first computer and have a question about WinXP, when I bought my memory and motherboard I also bought the WinXP OEM version (from zipzoomfly) because it was about 150 dollars cheaper then the full version and the only difference was the full version came in a nice box with some instructions, my question is after I install it on my new computer can I install it on the computer I am replacing which has WinMe on it?


Thanx

I'll answer in case someone else with the same question finds this thread. An OEM version of Windows XP (any flavor) can only be installed on one (the original) computer, ever. The full retail version can be installed on another computer, but only if it is removed from the original computer.
