Activate xp on a new hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a refurbished computer with windows xp professional installed.  There are 2  coa labels on the cd that came with it, and I used the product key on the label from the refurisher.

    The hard drive crashed and I bought a new one.  Do I install xp using the same cd and activate using the same product key, ie the one from the refurbisher?

    The other coa label is from the pc manufacturer.  Will there be a problem with activation?
