you should be able to as long as product activation doesn't give you problems and that the disc is actually a full copy of xp not just a manufacturers restore disc

Thanks nitestick

What I thought was a copy of Windows XP was realy just a Windows XP book shrink wraped around a piece of cardboard

I guess all I have is the Emachine restore cds with Windows XP on them somewhere. Is there any way to get the XP files off of the restore cds?

a restore cd is usually an image of your pc so you cant do it......
