You have a laptop and a desktop and each have a product key sticker / their own product keys?
The desk top has had windows reinstalled clean. The product key (number you have to enter to finish install) was with the disk. Which is legal and I have this disk.
The laptop has a clean install of the windows as the above. But this system had ME in it first. So the product code on the laptop is for ME not XP. Our I.T. person wiped and install XP Pro but didn't give me the disk.
So my question is
If I ever had to use the xp disk from the desktop to repair or reinstall on my laptop. Could I use the product key that is on the laptop now with the disk from the desktop.
Sorry, I know what I want to say I just can't figure out how to word it. I don't mean to confuse anyone. I think I'm a little confused now..lol
