  • luisg20,

    The short answer: If the disc that came with the computer is the XP Home recovery media for your computer, YES.

    Remember to back up your personal files, grab drivers for your computer's hardware, and have your purchased software on hand for reinstallation. ALSO, product keys for applications. So you don't run into problems on the other side.

    Make it a great day!

    Rick, MS
