yah, one would be registered....at Microsoft & the other would ask you to register, but you don't have to when installing it .

that's what i did...i took my girlfriend's copy of XP and put it on my old Gatway comp....works fine.

xp is turned on by microsft-
If they have a record of an install it generally will not activate if installed on another machine.
This is usually the home version.-pro version Im not sure about.
