Downloaded XP onto the IBM. Where did you download XP from?
Or do you mean you 'installed' XP from the XP CD that came with the Dell desktop, to the IBM computer?
If that is what you did, (installed from the Dell XP CD), then that breaks the OEM licensing rule and the XP OS on the IBM will likely fail activation.
I had Windows XP given to me by the Dell for their desktop. I was given IBM Aptiva E Series 270 desktop given to me by a friend.
It was carrying Windows 2000. I downloaded Windows XP in to
the IBM computer, but when I tried to download the Driver for
Internet on it, the (IBM) computer crashed-down repeatedly.
Which is the cheapest way to Download it?
If that can't be done, which is the best practical way?
