NO, you should NOT try to put the same copy you buy on 2 PC's, not only is it illegal, but will not work due to WPA, or Windows product activation - what MS uses to control piracy. I think XP will only work for 30 days(?) unless you activate it.

They will get worse than that and refuse to allow one of the installs to activate which means the system stops loading Windows in 30 days or less..
If you want XP on two systems then you MUST purchase two separate licenses or cd's for the install..
I have also noticed you have posted a log in the Malwrae Forum.. I have advised the person helping you of your inability to update due to an illegal copy of Windows.. I suspect he will advise you that your support on that thread will end until you have a legal version installed!!

Also, due to the fact you are running an illegal version, I will have to close this thread.. Thanks for your understanding and co-operation in this matter..
Once you have installed a legal version, do not hesitate in coming back for any problems you may be incurring !!
