    Ok I have an old compaq presario 5wv254 running windows me. I have a recovery disk for my windows xp packard bell laptop.

    Could i use this cd on my compaq to install windows xp on it? Is this possible or do i have to get proper xp installation cd? I gather the recovery cd has the xp installation files but as its a packard bell cd, i guess it wont work on my compaq?

    probably won't work as it will be tied to the bios, and as it's OEM it's against the EULA to install on more than one computer.
