    XP Licence Key

    Does anyone know of a legitimate cheap source for an XP Professional licence key. I already have XP Professional on my desktop computer and would like to put it on another PC, so I have the disk but I need another key.

    I believe there is a legitimate way of reclaiming keys from an old PC but don't know much about, can anyone help?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear - I am not moving XP from one machine to another, I want to buy a licence so that I can use my existing XP Pro CD to install XP Pro onto another machine.

    The Ebuyer option looks dear to me

    I might sound thick here but when we got our second pc we loaded xp on from our cd from 1st pc then phoned microsoft up who gave as a new key for second pc for nothing!

    Just have a search on Google.......

    If your other PC is brand new, then you can use an oem license however if it's an old pc that you want to upgrade to xp, then you need a full retail copy or an upgrade disc. Also do you really need professional? Will home not be sufficient? If your not logging on to a domain then there is no point in having pro. The cheapest legal way would be to get hold of a knackered pc that used to have xp on it and "repair it" with the parts out of your second PC. Other than that, try ebay or maybe one of your friends might be getting rid of a copy of xp in favour of vista???
