DELL XP HOME CD KEY --> New Computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my friend old Dell PC and I was in the proccess of building him a new PC.

    He does not have the original install disk, and I believe they were "Dell Install CD's" anyway.

     

    I have a copy of XP Pro - If I use that to install on his PC, will the XP Home key work?

    I don't really want to spend another $90 on XP Home.

     

    Please help!

    A:  No.

     

    The license for XP Home that came on the Dell is an OEM license that is permanently associated with that particular Dell computer and cannot be used on any other computer.
