Hi ... My friend has a HP computer with Windows xp home edition preinstall , Now my friend also has a full retail version of Windows xp home edition on cd disk ... He want to install this retail version onto his HP computer .... I have heard that you can change the boot.ini file so it can accept the retail version as OEM version and my friend could use the product keys that with his HP computer , This way if my friend ever want to use another computer he can use the retail version disk product keys ... Can someone explain how this can be done ?? Thanks
