No....at least not legally. You are not supposed to share the same cd key for more than one computer. You can get xp pro OEM somewhat cheaper these days, just do it, when you buy an original, trust me you just feel good about yourself.

Oh and thats if your still using the VAIO and the internet on it, if you aren't then that's fine, it isn't illegal...really.

Most likely no due to the fact that Sony,HP,Dell are special versons on the Windows OS and will detect if its a Sony,HP,etc.

But you can try it just may work.

If you have activated it on only one computer, it should work. I have a corporate license for XP Pro, and while it’s perfectly legal, I can’t get MS AntiSpyware
