Every four years or so, the university where I work supplies us with new PC’s. We’re given the option to buy our old ‘workhorse’ for about €10.00 (US$14.00).
My home PC has a legitimate and validated Windows XP OS installed. After backing up the important files from my old PC, I’ll format the hard-drive and donate it to an elementary school in the area.
My question is: I wish to ‘re-install’ my original Windows XP in the ‘new’ computer and am wondering what I have to expect from Microsoft. I’m sure MS will not validate the new installation in the new computer – but its a legitimate copy. What can I expect?
Thanks in advance for any helpful hints.
