XP Home OEM installation

  Blubottle 16:06 21 Nov 2008

I have just bought an OEM copy of XP Home microsoft sealed in a box titled "OEM system builder pack intended for system builders ONLY" it then goes on to to talk about the need for The OEM preinstallation kit (OPK) I intend to reformat the back up hard drive on my pc and install XP home on it and run it alongside Win 2K installed on the primary HD as a dual boot system. Will Xp OEM install correctly in this way ?.
advice please

your copy of XP home will install, just like any other. The OPK is only for system builders, installing on multiple systems.
