  • Hi there

    You are on the wrong forum for general windows questions. This forum is for OneCare.

    But as a quick - and off topic - reply to your question, if the WinXP CD is for the laptop you bought then you cannot install it on your PC. You need a separate, individual licence key for each installation of a Windows operating system which, comes with each legitimate copy of Windows.

    Sorry :-)
