I have “acquired” a full version of Windows XP complete with a Key Code.
It says on the disk “only to be used with a new Dell PC” and I don’t have a Dell PC let alone a new one, so I am a bit bemused as to whether I should upgrade my PC or not?
I also don’t have an original copy of Windows 98SE (my current OS) and hence if I destroy my PC by bodgying up the upgrade, then I wont be able to roll back to Win98SE.
I am also concerned that all my hardware has 98SE drivers and that I may not be able to use things like the monitor, printer, modem etc etc.
Am I validly concerned? Is XP all that important (I cant use iPods etc at the moment because it needs XP) or should I stick to Win98SE until I do make a new PC purchase – which could be a while.
Anyone who has any advice, please let me know.
