i have packard bell laptop with xp home oem on it.
i would like to format it (ideally on factory settings), but i cannot find preinstaled packard bell partition to do that.
however, i have retail xp pro cd, and one oem xp home sp3 (from dell for other machine).
the question is: can i format packard bell with any of these cd's? (i am askig this as i am not sure that i would be able maybe to validate xp when i change cd's kay to packard bells xp sticker key, as the key on packard bell is for xp home, not for xp home sp3)
thank you for any advice.
