But he has the licence and operating system, he just needs one to repair it. Am i right in thinking using someone's XP cd is legal?

Yes, under those circumstances, using someone else's disc is legal.

Yes, under those circumstances, using someone else's disc is legal.

ER NO, as long as you have a valid licence key, borrowing a disc is OK...

Hi, im in mid wales but would gladly pay anyone for a loan of a disc or a copy of one. Id rather do that than pay the £73 from woodchip's link! :o(

Disc copying would be illegal!!

  buel 22:25 20 Jul 2010

even if to use alongside a valid licence? Am i right in thinking that a copied disc would be of absolutely zero use to anyone without a valid licence?

  Technotiger 22:25 20 Jul 2010

Hi, pardon - are we not saying exactly the same thing, buel said he does have the required licence key!

  Technotiger 22:27 20 Jul 2010

Copying is totally illegal under any circumstances!
