Arrow How many number of times I am entitled to Install Windows xp on my computer

Hi fellows:

I have just bought a Windows XP CD on Ebay with product key and it works perfectly. What I would like to know how many times I can re-install Windows if I have to format my hard drive a few times in the future for any reason. If anyone knows plz let me know. Thanks

if you leagally own XP then you are entitled to install XP on any one machines as many times as you like...

the activation may fail when you install and reisntall many time in quick sucession, but then you just need to phone the free phone number for a new activation key, (activation key is not the same as product key).

Haha, course....

Nah, if it is real you can install it as many times as you can on any one PC. Microsoft Support are always good if it doesn't work.
