Reinstalling XP

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?UEo=?=, Jun 17, 2006.

  1. I have been advised by MS that I dont have a genuine copy of XP, which is
    possible given the computer was put together for me by a friend who I think
    used a corporate copy. I intend purchasing XP Academic - what do I have to
    do when I install this new copy of XP? Do I lose the data? Do I have to
    uninstall the current (not genuine) copy?

    You boot from the XP CD, do a REPAIR install, use the key code numbers from
    the purchased version, and things should be just fine.
