Buying a second XP upgrade.

  Sapins 13:35 16 Mar 2005

I have bought an XP upgrade and when installing it I was asked to insert the CD of my previous version of Windows which was 98SE.

If I want to buy another XP upgrade can I use the same 98SE CD?

Yes;-) It will work, but you get into the one disk (98) for one computer

Is there a big difference in price on the continent for upgrade disks or are you buying from the UK.

It's just here, it's cheaper to get an oem of XP, rather than the upgrade disk. click here click here

You would have to order some hardware to get the OEM version, but a 99p mouse would do.;-)

Hi, I would buy from the UK to get the English version and I would want the full disc, I don't think the price difference is too great, I just wondered as I am thinking of getting a second copy of XP for another computer.
