Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Dell XP CD key and OEM xp CD

\015 So its like this i have a ton of old Dell pc's laying around, and they all have xp pro keys on them. What can i do to get those keys to work on whitebox pc's, i know its got to be possible im willing to try almost anything at this point. I hate to just throw all the pc's away when i feel they could be used.\015

Answers :

You will probably need to get an OEM copy of XP Pro, from such a vendor as Newegg.com

Those keys's should work on any other white box machine as long as you use an OEM cd of xp pro
