Ive been given an xp pro licence, that says "Windows XP Professional 1-2CPU Samsung Electronics" from an old computer no longer in use.
I want to install xp pro on a newly built pc if i type in the product key will it work or say its a counterfeit version of windows? I know sometimes you need to ring up to get a valid key when re-installing if i ring is there any chance of them giving it to me
I assume the licence came from a laptop originally ive never seen a samsung pc or am i wrong?
If i say ive put a new hard drive in my laptop will they give me the code then? or wont i even need to ring?

Also since it says samsung am i right in thinking its an oem licence, and do i need to aquire an oem xp pro disc as mine is retail but i dont have the licence for it?
thanks a lot
