Yo, Need Help Plz!



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?


One Disk One Computer

That's how it works, from what I'm told. The second install should run out in the 30 days that you spoke of. I think you get a discount for your second install. Not much 10 or 15 bucks.

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 :D , 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.

Damn Dust in the air <cough, cough>:mad:

Hey, but on a Brighter note

:D you could always check out some nifty sites that could actually help you <cough> keep your 'puter in top shape !!

:D Don't say I never gave you nothin :D <cough, cough>


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...


A crack is a small software program. in this case it that disable the 30 day trial period. that is encoded into the XP OS.
Is it allowed. (probably not)
