old copy of XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had problems with an old Computer. I had to format the drive and I installed Kubuntu.

    I wish to go back to XP so I can play a bunch of old games I have saved.

    I have an old retail version of XP but I don't have any means of checking to see if it was installed on this computer. Is there any way to check?

    Thank you,

  • If it's a retail version (NOT and OEM System Builder) then it will be valid on this machine anyhow - go ahead, assuming that it isn't still installed in any other machine!
