Yes, you can do it. If it has been 6 months since original installation you wont need to call MS. if you are instructed to call MS, call them and when they ask the reason for re-install... make sure to tell them it is a new PC, and that YES you have uninstalled it from the other PC. If you say no, you will lose authentication rights immediately.

I want a legal product key for windows xp professional sp2 so I can register it with microsoft


Hello. If your computer has a windows XP Pro sticker on it you may be able to call Microsoft and validate your operating system if it is ligitamate, or buy an operating system disk on ebay for your brand of computer. Any Dell XP Pro disk will work with a Dell computer having a Dell XP Pro sticker, and so on for other brands, as long as your sticker has your computer brand on it. If you have a sticker without a brand name or no sticker at all you'll probably have to buy a retail disk.

These directions may be helpfull.

Find windows xp professional sp2 product key


If you bought it directly from Dell or an authorized reseller, there should be a Certificate of Authenticity sticker on the bottom, assuming you didn't remove it.

If you did, unfortunately there is nothing anyone will be able to do for you, Dell included(I've worked Dell CS).

If you are able to load into windows, you may be able to recover your product key through windows, google is your friend.

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39956.html

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.

Hi,
You can buy Windows XP at many computer stores or online. Here is a link to an eBay seller in the Philippines, where you appear to be from:
http://cgi.ebay.ph/Geniune-Windows-XP-SP2-Home-Edition_W0QQitemZ110336383681QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_211?hash=item110336383681&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A833|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Then you need to install Japanese fonts and the Japanese IME using the Windows xp disk.
Here is a visual guide for you:
