I've bought a new motherboard and i want to make sure i know exactly what I'm doing before i start installing it. my computer didn't come with a windows xp install disk (or i386 folder [bleep] it!)
Some guides say i can install it without reinstalling windows; others say i will have to. i can use magical jellybean keyfinder to find my windows something-or-other key.
Is it necessary to reinstall xp, if so can i do it with a friends installation disk, what keys/codes will i need?
(should this post have been in the hardware section? i don't know.)
edit: it bleeped out the mildest swear i know!
