    It's the same for everyone.
    You can use the disk in any computer, but the Key in only one
    computer.
     
    Windows XP is rare enough now that the chances are already that what
    you bought is counterfeit, unless you are very sure of your source.

  • No.  Windows XP is licensed for installation and activation on just one computer.

  • No, there is no other solution other than purchase a genuine copy of Windows for each computer you wish to install it on.
