XP reactivation from old computer to new.

You will not have to buy another copy unless your original is OEM.

When you have built and installed XP, you will be asked to activate XP. If you are connected to the web this will be done automatically.

If this results in the reactivation being declined you will be given a number with which to contact MS. Tell them what you have done and they will give you a reactivation code to tap into the machine manually.
