Using XP Home Upgrade to install full version? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking at a Dell P4 Computer which was of course originally sold with XP Home installed. The owner, however, put Linux on it instead (why?!). He cannot find the original installation CD.

    Provided the Certificate of Authenticity with product key are posted on the computer (as they usually are) can I use my upgrade CD for XP Home SP2 to install and activate Windows on this computer? If so, I'll buy it. Otherwise, I'll have to look for one with XP installed and the disc and documentation included.
