  • Dell Dimension XP install

    My father has a Dell Dim. 4400 that he is giving to a friend's son.

    I have a Dell Dim 8300.

    Can I use the same XP disc that came with mine to reformat and install XP on his?

    You should be able to provided both systems run the same version of XP.

    So, if his system runs XP Home and your disk is XP Home, then it is not a problem.

    This is also assuming this is a XP retail or OEM disk not a Dell customized backup disk (which may not work in other systems).

      They both have the same version of XP.
      Here is what the disc says:
      Operating System
      Reinstallation CD
      Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

      Also:
      Only use this CD to install the operating system on a Dell computer.


      Thanks in advance!

        Yep, that'll work fine. Just make sure he uses the CoA key on the sticker on his case and not yours. :)
