Grandson has a Emachine and the OS came with the purchase. Problem is that the Machine is a little flaky and I want to do a repair of the system but, he no longer has the restore disk (S) that came with the system. The product code is on the machine and I am able to download the updates from the web. This is a genuine copy of the OS......My question is " can I use my retail copy of XP home that I run om my pc to do a repair of his and if so what is the correct procedure to do so?
Thanks for any help that someone can shed on this.
