    I upgarded to XP Pro about a year and a half ago on my desktop. I just bought a new laptop with XP Home and I'd like to use the same XP Pro upgrade disk that I used for the desktop to upgarde the laptop. What issues/problems could I run in to if I used that same disk on the laptop?

    Here is an excerpt from the Microsoft license for WinXP:

    "Installation and use. You may install, use, access, display and run one copy of the Product on a single computer,
    such as a workstation, terminal or other device (“Workstation Computer”). The Product may not be used by
    more than two (2) processors at any one time on any single Workstation Computer."

    The short answer... it's not legal. You are only licensed to run your XP disk on one (1) computer.
