    How can I tell? It's a CD we just had lying around, its copied from a Windows XP disk we bought about 3 years ago, that I used to install on my Sisters way-old laptop. I can't remember if it was a full-install version or Upgrade?

    :confused:

    It should tell you. You could still use it, assuming you have a copy of 98/ME around. I'm not sure about 95. :S The biggest concern, even if it is a full version, is whether or not it's SP2 or not. You could try slipstreaming the disk if that is the case.

    I've inserted the disk into XP, how do I then tell if its Full or Upgrade?

    Thanks :)
