Windows XP-Pro reactivation! RRS feed

  • Question


    I just bought a genuine CD of Windows XP-Pro. Incidently I require to upgrade my Hard drive. Someone tells me that if I install the same copy of Windows on the new Hard disk, it won't activate and that it is only a ONE time measure!!! That true? Don't tell me that i bought the original windows CD for just one time installation and that it can't be reactivated/validated.

  • Windows XP can be installled and reinstalled on the same computer as many times as you wish.  After reinstalling, if you are unable to activate via the internet, then use the alternative option to "activate by phone".
