nothing venture nothing gain..right? Windows 2000 doesn't require activation, so you should be ok there, but...xp maybe a different story though. Is the xp have an OEM type license or is it a retail type license? If it's OEM then probably not ok.
I have a couple of old computers and i would like to throw them out. Can I reuse the operating system on my new computer in a virtual environment. The operating systems are windows 2000 and windows xp. Does microsoft have a problem with this?
