Question about PC Desktops
It will install on any PC but I suspect that if you use the CD, even with the Key from the PID, it will not activate. I had this problem when I upgraded my son's Dell 4600 and used a Clone MB.
XP installed fine,but it would not activate. I ended up calling MS activation line, explained that I had upgraded, and they gave me an activation key.
Legally, Dell branded XP is sold only with the system, and the license in not transferrable to another system (This limitation is only for OS's sold by OEM PC manufactures [YES, I actually read the license agreement during an install on my Dell system one day], doesn't apply to MS branded Retail XP)
