When I purchased my Computer I did not get CD with Windows XP Pro( My OS).
I only received a set of Restore CDs. Fortunately I have not needed them but
they would be nice to have.
I have a CD/DVD burner with Roxio Disc Creator. Question is; How do I create
a CD with just XP which is bootable just in case of trouble.?

If you're asking how to create a Windows installation CD from
your OEM's Restore CD, the answer is that you can *not* do this.
If your OEM doesn't supply one, your only recourse it to buy one
yourself.

Since one cannot modify a PC manufacturer's Restore CD,
you'll have to purchase a conventional Windows XP CD.
Otherwise, you'll have to use the Restore CD in accordance
with the manufacturer's recommended recovery method.

Examples:

Microsoft Windows XP HOME Edition With Service Pack 2 - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1683...

Microsoft Windows XP Pro with SP2 Upgrade Software

If they purchase a Windows XP CD, wouldn't that make it two operating
systems for one computer, and doesn't the EULA specifically state one
operating system per computer?

No. The license for OEM versions permanently ties them to the
first computer they are installed on. They can never legally be
transferred to another computer, sold, or given away.

This is one of the principal reasons that OEM versions are
cheaper than retail versions; their license is much more
restrictive.

Call the manufacture and ask them to send you an OEM copy for your machine,
this way you will be legal and not have to purchase a 2nd copy of the OS
media.

hai, refer to my former question. So if it was a retail versions XP CD box.
Then it could be sold to another user if he decided to change operating
system, event it has been registed on line?
Yes or No. Just to confirm.

Thank you for your crearification before.

The license goes with the computer. It can't be "sold" separately.

You misquoted the EULA (PRO is example)

" You may install, use, access, display and run one copy of the Product
on a single computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other device
("Workstation Computer"). The Product may not be used by more than two
(2) processors at any one time on any single Workstation Computer.

Has he installed that OEM license? If so, the only way your friend can
legitimately transfer ownership of that OEM license would be to include
the entire computer in the deal.

OEM versions must be sold with a piece of non-peripheral hardware
(normally a motherboard or hard drive, if not an entire PC, although
Microsoft has greatly relaxed the hardware criteria for WinXP) and are
_permanently_ bound to the first PC on which they are installed. An OEM
license, once installed, is not legally transferable to another computer
under any circumstances. This is the main reason some people avoid OEM
versions; if the PC dies or is otherwise disposed of (even stolen), you
cannot re-use your OEM license on a new PC. The only legitimate way to
transfer the ownership of an installed OEM license is to transfer
ownership of the entire PC.

Only if it has never been installed upon a computer.

Basically what is happing here is that each motherboard has different HAL
types, the ghost image is based on the original HAL, and the new motherboard
requires a different HAL, it would be best to do a fresh install of XP in
this case. Suggestion you may want to get a professional to perform the work
if you are having difficulties with the install.
