Using OS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It was forgotten that I also need an operating system for my new computer build. Will I be able to use the os disk i got with my old Dell and install it onto my new computer?

I dont see why you couldnt, Just download a program called Nlite (www.nliteos.com) and take out all the useless dell crap on the installation, you can also customize it too...I really dont see why it wouldnt work unless someone here knows other reasons why it wouldnt.

it might just be a restoration disk. So it may not work for a fresh install on a clean drive. you may have to buy a copy.

if its an OS disk then it should work, however there could be a slight problem with the product key issue, but its highly unlikey though
