OEM woes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im getting a new computer soon with vista Home Premium. Now ive heard a lot about vista being bad and i might want to use my old oem of XP. Now i know its illegal to install it on a different computer but what if i put it this way, i want to upgrade my hard drive, so i transfer the data to a new harddrive. after that i basically want to "upgrade" the rest of my computer. is that legal?

I'm sorry but you worded that quite badly.

Put it this way, if you have XP or Vista installed on more than one computer at a time, it's illegal. Simple as that.
