But surely then, the computer print would be different, wouldn't it? does
the software only pick up the print from the hard drive? Does this mean that
if you reformat a drive you can install the same copy of win xp on 2
computers?
Just curious.

Generally when most PCs are sold with operating system, if you disturb this
and put one of your own on it may invalidate part of the warrantee though it
would e possible technically.  If you can get a PC sans operating system
then you could in theory install your Windows XP on this, even if it is an
upgrade provided you have the original Windows ME CD if it is an upgrade
version then XP can be installed on a clean drive.

  Hi all,
  Because my system is 6 years old now and is showing signs of fatigue in
  spite of processor and mother board upgrade, I'm thinking of buying  an
  entirely new set-up.
  As I live in France everything comes with French versions of Windows and
MS
  office installed.
  I find it much more comfortable to use an English version. Could I
uninstall
  the French version of windows pre-installed on a new set-up and install my
  own version, an upgrade of WIN ME? Do I then have to re-activate Windows?
or
  must I buy a brand new copy of the operating system?I have seen some pcs
  sold without any  OS installed, would one of those allow me to install my
  own version of Windows?
  As you see, am not sure about what is allowed by Microsoft and what is
best
  for smooth operation.
  Please enlighten me.

  All the best to one and all,

  Marie
