Re: Can i do this?
Sure you can do it. The best thing is if you want to check it out, you have
30 days before you have to activate to play around and get use to all the
features. You can then reinstall XP on your system. Remember you can only
use Vista on the current one if you don't activate it. If you do activate,
you can't uninstall and reinstall on another computer.
One thing you could do is call the activation line at Microsoft and pose the
question to them and see what the response would be. If they allow it (I
know it goes against the EULA), then you could activate, use it and then put
it on your new computer.
I'm sure others will chime in with their take on the issue also.
