    Generally speaking, if your computer came with windows preloaded, and it's a big company (Dell, Gateway, HP, etc) No you can't put that version of windows on a new comptuer because of licensing requirements, if you bought Windows seperately, yes you can migrate it over.

  • Boss7,

    Regarding the XP that is on the old computer now, did that come preinstalled by the computer manufacturer on the old computer or was it purchased by you in a pretty retail box and installed by you?
