I have two computers; one is working (an old Sony Vaio PCG-FX215) and one isn't (a newer Sony Vaio VGN-FE790p). The working computer has Windows ME for an OS, and it needs an upgrade to Windows XP. As far as I know, it meets the system requirements for an upgrade to XP. I haven't yet checked whether it meets system requirements for a fresh new install of Windows XP, but if it does, can I use the recovery CDS that came with the other (newer) computer? I realize I would have to wipe the hard drive of the old computer before installing. Or does Microsoft only allow one installation of an OS per computer? I am not asking to do anything illegal; just asking if anyone knows what the policy is. Tx for any feedback.
