Register lic. when imaged

By jsarinana ·
If I image a h.d. then use it in another computer where M.S. wants me to re-register. Can I just purchase another XP CD and use that new product key ?

yes and no...

If the new cd is the same service pack level, then the new Serial # will work. Otherwise, you will have to do the re-activation online on that computer with microsoft.

best thing to do when imaging and they are your computers is not do the sysprep... so, if it is the same mobo and all, boot up, everything will be the same, no authorizing required. Just buy another cd and have on hand to comply with licensing issue.
