Hi,

I've purchased an OEM copy of WIN XP for my custom build at home. I just wanted to know whether I can install it easily as I've read things about an OPK on the box but I know I only have a one-pack version. Will that still install ok, or should I send it back?

You shouldn't have any problem installing XP after booting the PC with your OEM CD.

I would take it out the wrapper first, installs much better this way..LOL
