Install XP home using any XP home disc? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings All,

    Is it legal to use any windows XP Home CD to install on a PC so long as the PC has a valid COA attached and the 25 digit key from that COA is used during install?

    Here's my situation:

    I have a client who (thanks to one of her kids) got a rootkit on her machine, I told her that the quickest way to get rid of it was to wipe the drive and do a fresh install.
    She does not have her original windows XP home CD, however she does have the COA attached to her machine.
