OK, My brother filled his computer with malware, so I decided to install ubuntu on his 2nd partition while I fixed the windows installation. When I installed ubuntu I accidentally selected 'Guided - Use Whole Disk', thus wiping all partitions, including windows, and the recovery partition and installing ubuntu. For some odd reason he doesn't like ubuntu, and I feel bad, so, I know it's impossible to recover his
windows, but is it possible to LEGALLY install an OEM version of windows? Would I use the product key on his COA?
The computer is a store bought acer which had
XP Media Center pre-installed.
Thanks in advance.
May I also point out he doesn't have an XP disk, I mean to buy
one from somewhere, and use that.
