will my media center... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an HP media center pc and I would love to wipe my drive and partition it differently. I have an Xp pro cd. Will my MCE key validate with the XP pro cd? I really could care less about the MCE additions, I hate them and don't use them.
     
    Or, I have an old laptop that has been severely damaged and no longer works but does have a valid XP pro key. What are my chances of running into validation issues if I use that key?
     
    Thanks

  • Is there a way I can test my key without having to install it?
