Confused about XP licence key

  sneakerman 18:45 13 Jan 2008

I have windows XP on my desktop, I believe the Oem edition and I would like to put it onto my laptop as well (which is currently running XP Home)

I realise this is 'risky' but I have bought an "xp professional coa key licence" for a reasonable price off Ebay - When I get it how can I tell if it is legitimate without going through the whole process of installing it?

have bought an "xp professional coa key licence"

did you get a genuine XP Pro CD with it, if not then you have been done, the licenses are not sold seperately.

You cannot use a XP pro number with Home.
