Win XP Copy

  The Learner 13:45 01 Apr 2009

My neighbour cannot find his XP Pro disk but has a product key on his PC case so I have loaned him my disk and he has reformated his drive OK. He is asking if I can copy the disk so that he can do it himself in future. Will Win XP copy OK through a disk copying programme?

Yes, I've backed all mine up and reinstalled from some of them.

If he has an OEM key for example and you have a Retail copy of XP then the key will not work.

Yes, but he's already used to to reinstall.

Thank you good people. I will copy the disk and see if I can boot from the copy. That should prove that it is OK.
