    I have a brand new "Dell" XP Pro version of Windows that has never
    been opened and serial never used...Dell had sent me a new sealed disk about two years ago when I complained of a missing program that was not in the packaging.....(Go figure !!), so they sent another copy of Win XP Pro instead....Anyway can I install that on my MacBook Pro with VMware Fusion..??

    If it's a standard Windows XP disk, it will install.

    If it's a restore CD tailored to Dell hardware, it will not install.
