Hi,

I'm thinking about reinstalling Windows XP Home Edition on Dell Vostro, but I can't find the Windows XP CD that came with the laptop (I don't even remember if it came with one). I do however have a Windows XP Home Edition Reinstallation CD that came with my Dell Inspiron. Can I use this CD to reinstall Windows on my Vostro?

Thank you.

Hi makutatobeking,

Thank you for the reply. I already went ahead with the reinstall. I did check the bottom of my laptop fort he product key, oddly enough though, I was never prompted to enter anything when I reinstalled Windows. Is that normal?
