Changing XP product keys?

  Bob The Blob 13:47 16 Jun 2009

I have an old laptop that I've brought back to life and installed a fresh new hard drive in it.

Have installed XP from a brand new CD and used the product key that came with the new CD.

However, there is a sticker underneath the laptop with the old XP product key on it. Could I have used that key instead?

If so, is there any way to change the product key in the XP installation for the old one on the sticker, thus freeing up the product key that came with the new XP cd?

Hope that makes sense.
