Obtaining Genuine Microsoft Windows XP Pro or XP Home RRS feed

  • Question

  • Purchased what I thought to be genuine product (XP Pro) only to find out it was an OEM Disc, genuine disc etc., but haven't a clue how to proceed with installing on my HP A6325 uk Desktop. I do not believe it will with what I have read !


    My computer came Pre-Installed with Vista Home Premium. I can "shrink" and follow a very good proceedure, but all I need now is to obtain from MS a GENUINE XP Pro SP2 or GENUINE XP Home SP2. I recall paying £95 for one or the other, single licence, direct from MS as apposed to the retailers who ask far too much.


    Can anyone help with this please so that I may set up my "Dual Boot" system ? In pure mitigation, not for effect, I am now bedridden virtually and the old computer is so much a companion.


    Many thanks to whom ever....Dusty
