Hi. I'm building a new computer and it's been a few years so I haven't ordered a windows disk since XP went out. I was just curious if I could order a Windows XP Pro OEM disk with my hardware and that it would do a clean install on my harddrive, and also if I needed to reformat my computer if it would work there as well.

Thanks! :-)
