    Can I use XP recovery disk for virtual install?


    In particular - this XP recovery disk is for a Disney netpal netbook - and comes with a whole package of Disney software including a full desktop, games etc. Haven't tried a virtual install before - can you use existing disks to install or is it limited to a downloaded iso? Have Windows 10 Pro so is best to use the software in that or some other method like Virtual Box?

    :)

  2. XP disk versus Laptop Recovery Disk?

    My dad wants me to do a clean reinstall of Windows on his laptop.
    Through SIW I know his windows code and so I can install xp off one of my disks and use his legit code.
    He also has a 'recovery disk' for his laptop, but I've got no experience with recovery disks and don't know what they contain... is it a normal XP?

    Would it be best for me to reinstall using the normal XP diskette?

    XP disk versus Laptop Recovery Disk?

    Recovery disks are just OEM copies of XP disks. Ie, they can have things such as the companys logo within the files.

    If you got a normal XP disk you cant use it. The only way your dads copy of XP will activate is if your normal XP copy is OEM, unless you use the recovery disk.

    I always use the recovery disks. Works just like a normal copy *Smile Can I use XP recovery disk for virtual install? :). Plus with the recovery disks you dont need the serial key as I *think* its embedded into the files on the disk. Just need to activate windows once on the net *Wink Can I use XP recovery disk for virtual install? ;).
