I bought a new Dell computer with a OEM XP Professional. I also have 2 other older PCs and a notebook at home which have XP Home as their operating systems. When I tried to install the new OEM XP Pro on the other older PCs I got a message that the key number is incorrect. Later I have problem using the OEM XP Pro on the new computer that I had purchased. It does not recognised the ID key numbers it came with. Please advise. Khob Khun Ka

The XP Pro came with the Dell. I was able to install it on the new Dell that camw with it. But once I tried to install it on the older PCs I got an error message. Later even the original Dell had an error message after I tried to reinstall the operating system.

Read carefully slowly: YOU MUST PURCHASE NEW LICENSES FOR ADDITIONAL MACHINES----now don't fight it. Just reach into your pocket or if you dont have the money then use Linux.
