Activation key on old Dell from win2k to xp

\015 I need to update an old dell latitude c610 from win2k to xp. I have the recovery dell cd which would not ask for activation key in new computers. Now, if I do a clean installation on this laptop, will still recognize the machine as a dell, so it won't ask for a key?\015\012\015\012Thank you'll for your help\015

Answers :

You could always run the Winxp setup from windows 2000 itself and do an upgrade ,but it can be buggy and might ask for code.
\015\012If you use a Windows XP Dell CD from another computer it might not work as the hardware is different, unless it only says Windows XP OEM ,if it askes for the key you will have to insert one ,unless the CD doesn't require it.
If you do a clean install from a disk thats not a dell disk, it will then ask for the code.
