Not in all cases. We use OEM CDs at work, and it works on literally any CD key. Dells, HPs, SP1, SP2 it doesn't matter.

I have a copy of xp home upgrade, and xp home upgrade with sp2....yes they both accept the others key. as long as the copy is of the same type...retail, oem, corp, or upgrade they will work. you can not use a retail copy on a upgrade copy or any other copy unless it is the same exact type.

I had my XP Home No SP's Serial, and used my Dad's XP Home SP2 Disk. It Works

Aren't copies of XP discs illegal, also keygens?

Yes The only reason my copy of XP is legit is because its in the schools licence for me to have it! That being said, you can pick a copy of XP up now for around the 30 mark anyway.

Copies of the disk arent illegal. provided you are using an original key. Its the key that you actually pay for when you buy the OS

Infact - As long as you dont USE a keygen, is it legal to haave one? You can have a knife, they arnt illegal, but if you stab somone, it is...
