I am hoping that someone will be able to help me here. I have a laptop (Compaq) which came with Windows XP Professional pre-installed. It also came with the following CDs:-
Compaq QuickRestore Application Recovery CD Compaq QuickRestore System Recovery CD Compaq Operating System CD
all of them have Microsoft Windows XP Professional underneath the above titles.
Now, on the underside of the laptop is the Certificate of Authenticity sticker with the product key. However, I have noticed that it says:-
"Windows XP Professional 1 - 2 CPU"
Does this mean that I can use this product key and Windows XP Professional on my desktop machine (in the process of upgrading so would love to save the money instead of buying another copy of Windows XP).
