Transferring XP from my broken PC to my old PC RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,
    My laptop has just broke and is out of warranty. It had XP installed on it from purchase. It was an Acer machine and has three CDs for recovery - the machine will never recover because I have taken it to bits now.

    I have sawed out the piece of laptop that has the XP sticker/hologram on it.

    But I can't install my copy of XP on my old desktop from the attic that I now have to use.
    This is because it is not an Acer laptop.
    Is there any way I can install my copy of XP on my old computer?

    I can show you the smashed laptop and the sawn-out sticker/hologram if you like.

    Please help me as I work a lot at home but need to use XP.

    Thank you.
