Is it possible to install Win Xp on 2 comps?? i heard from someone that if i dont activate it , it will stop working in 30 days. Is there some thing i can do , so that doesnt happen?? or do i have to buy another license?
Well....Being as this is just a informational question..
(and of course you are just curious as to IF it could be done).
The official and correct answer is that you must have purchased a copy of WinXP for Each seperate 'puter you install it on.
[BTW, Don't hold your breath on ANY discount from MS]
Supposidly , If your 2 computers are Identical (Same exact system, hardware configuration, memory, LAN card, etc) then the activation is supposed to be the same for a given hardware configuration.
I have even seen (although it was NOT HERE at ex-perience.com) at another WinXP site a step by step method for taking an XP home version of XP and converting it to a <cough> different version which does not <cough> have the 30 day restriction <cough, cough>.
Course I don't <cough> condone any such "messing" with your beloved XP files.
The second Install is only $10-$15 off a regular install... And from waht I've read the demand for it has been so great That MS aren't doing it anymore... But I read that in an actual magazine, and yo know those thing are written three months ahead...
