    Ok, here's the senario.
    I need to reinstall WinXP Pro on a laptop for this girl I know. She's at school. can't find the damn WinXp cd, good news is I have the WinXP Pro CD-Key it's on the bottom of the laptop.

    Question is could I use a copied WinXP cd to do the install as I have a valid CD-Key ??

    Yep it'll work.

    Dosen't matter of the CD is copied as long as you have a valid CD key.

    another XP question. my dad bought a new comp and it came with Windows XP Media Edition. There's no saying if it's either Pro or Home. which is it built on? the system cost like $200 more for the media version since it has a boat load of extra cool stuff. you can record tv and listen to the radio, etc. very cool.

    i'm gonna guess Home, b/c its more geared toward home, where as my XP Pro was pretty stripped down, didnt even come with games on it..

    but i'm not 100% sure.
