New windows xp home install with an old CD Tags: Computers Hard Drives Windows XP Last response: February 10, 2008 10:47 AM in Windows XP Share Dunkel February 9, 2008 8:42:57 PM I purchased xp home a few years ago, so I have the disk. I just built a new computer and used the old hard drive with windows already on it. It booted up just fine, and everything is running great. I formated an old hard drive and put it in the old computer. Can I use the disk I bought to load windows?

It's activating the installation online where you will at some point have to call the 800 number for a one time activation key.
