Dear,
does cd show any files, if yes then it should install it..
if not then might be possible that there is scratches or brakage in cd...
if not, then it should be install ...
moreover, check if ur system has any previous files there,
what about backup. did ur friend put the backup to your new harddriver..
if yes, then remove any files existing relavant to that...and then reinstall a fresh copy..
hope it will work.

dont forget to rate, if its functional

regards,

Is it possible to take my IDE harddrive from my old dell dimension 8100 running 'XP' and install it as a second harddrive in my dell studio 8100 studio xps with W7, then boot "XP" from harddrive...


If your motherboard in your new machine supports IDE and you set the jumper on the HDD to slave then I dont see any reason why you wouldnt be able to use it as a second drive

Need an activation key for Offce 2003.


Your product key probably doesn't work because Microsoft only gives you a certain number of licenses when you buy Office, and you've probably used them up. (It's usually either 1 or 3.)

Call Microsoft's tech support line and tell them what happened, maybe they will reset your license so you can reactivate Office. Otherwise, you'll have to buy another license. (You can do that from Microsoft.com.)

I closed my business last month and my desk top dell dimension was networked with microsoft xp pro and i want to take the hard drive from that somputer and install it in my home computer which is a stand...


HI,
When you remove the harddrive from a computer and plug it into a different machine though of the same model.It would not boot, because the operating system product key is unique to the machine. If you want to use this particular hdd in your home system, make it a secondary harddrive or reload windows on the harddrive again. But doing so , you would remove everything from the harddrive.

Thanks for using Fixya
