I have XP on a laptop that i'm no longer going to be using. And this laptop didn't come with a dedicated XP CD. So is there a way to get a clean(not hacked) XP setup disc or install to use? Would MS cooperate with me if ask them nicely for one? Anyone have any ideas?
According to the MS EULA, the Windows XP OEM software is tied to the computer it was installed on. If you found a Windows XP OEM CD you could install it using the Product Key from the laptop but you would have to call MS to activate and explain how your motherboard died.
