I am about to purchase WinXP Home OEM (I like the price) but cannot get a straight answer to
Will the CD boot? PC has brand new formated HD, etc.
It may seem a simple question, but it seems that not all WinXP CDs are bootable.
How do I know the one I am buying will boot?
Can you advise MicroSoft product numbers for bootable WinXP Home with SP2?
Then I can ask the retailers if their box contains MS product number xxxxxx
The internet retailers for the packages have not replied to my 'bootable' question.
Could be a case of buying volume boxes and selling on, without any understanding of what's in the box.
