I do not believe you need same CD key. What we do here is we install Windows on different computers but we buy seperate license (different keys). Different CD Keys work for us. Just make sure you purchase a license for Windows XP.

The cd key is always stored in the registry

you can always get it from there if you forgot to keep it in a safe place.


go for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
and in the right pane there is a string named "ProductKey" which has the key.

This is for win98 but its the same for every flavour anyway...:D
