    My family has 2 HP desktops that are running XP and I have my 2.16 CD MBP. I am also thinking about replacing one of the HPs with an Intel Mini after this next update on Tuesday. I will need to run Windows of some sort on the Mini for my mothers ease of transition and her casual gaming addiction.

    My question is if anyone knows if I can contact HP for XP install discs since I have the machines and the license? Or would I go through Microsoft? Or am I just going to have to buy XP/Vista? I'll do some searching as well as waiting for responses. If I answer my question I will post with the results.

    Thanks

    I'm sure your HP desktops have a little license sticker with the OEM cd-key's.. And you can probably torrent a HP OEM version of Windows.

    I don't think they'll assist you in this situation, unless you lie to them :(
