Sony Vaio into media server.
Hi guys, I have a old Sony vaio that I want to use as a media server on my home network (5 pc + media server)
It has windows xp on it and It has problems, So I need to reinstall XP or something else. I don't have the restore Cd's But it has the XP key on the back of the case, Can I download a XP torrent and use the key that's on the back of the case.
OR, Should I use some different software?
I want to use it to record TV, Store Movies, Music, Pictures, backup important files and hook up a couple shared printers to it.
If I get it all working the way I want, I will install 2 500GB IDE HDDs from newegg $100 bucks each.
What are my options?
All suggestions and advice are welcome!!
