OEM HP XP on my new Acer RRS feed

  • Question


    My HP laptop went up in smoke. I bought a new Acer an hour later to find it has Vista. I hate it for several reasons, which need not be addressed on this forum, and want to put my copy of XP from the HP on the Acer. Can I do this?

  • No.  An HP OEM version of Windows can only be validated on an HP computer.
