The only software I would use is official Microsoft software - either full install or if I had to upgrade, but in any case software complete with the Microsoft EULA and license for that software.

Any installation of XP will have to be validated using the Microsoft key (license) number.

Yes, I agree - get the official MS cd, either upgrade or full OS install. I would never trust a downloadable upgrade. Most are bogus.
