*Situation* - Computer A has XP home on it.- Computer B has Windows ME on it.*Objective*- I want to install XP Pro on computer A.*Question*- Will the existing Home version be rendered useless then or can I legally use it on Computer B if I remove it and contact Microsoft?
If you can prove to Microsoft its been removed from Computer A then yes.Just have to install it then phone them and explain the situation a new Activation code and you can use it.
I thought so - but how can I *prove* it has been removed?This is what puzzles me.

is right. The WinXP licence is for installation on one machine. Remove it from that machine and you can install it on another - just explain what you've done if the activation wizard on Computer B tells you that you have to phone the activation desk.
that you've removed the OS from the first machine. In the real world they have to understand that this will happen, and they do in my experience. You're being honest with them, and they'll understand that.
Ok thank you, I'll try that.(I'm still puzzled as to how activation works in these situations)
Ahh right, I typed/spoke too soon.Thanks FE
they'll just have to take your word that you've completely removed it from computer A. but of course you won't be able to activate it again on computer A
I'd have XP Pro on Computer A though so there'd be no need to try Ravin.Thanks anyway.
