Yes! That's what I meant...sorry for any confusion! Boy, that sure made my day. I've always worried that if I tried reinstalling that I'd leave a customer with a non-validated XP...I guess I don't have to worry anymore.
But as for the whole SP thing...do you know if that matters? Like for instance, I have the XP O/S cd that came with my old Dell--it's SP2. Could I use that disk to reinstall XP on an HP system that previously had SP1 on it?
Thanks...and sorry again for kind of jacking this thread...I just figured it might be helpful for someone.
I have zero experience with BUILDING or working at the hardware level with AMD CPUs, but I'm assuming that should work as long as the new CPU is the same socket as the old one. Someone who's more AMD tech-wise will be able to provide better assistance.
