    Dell free upgrade to XP

    A friend of mine just bought a computer through Dell and it came with WinME installed (which she wants), but it comes with an offer for a free upgrade to XP. They ask for the WinME serial number. Can she give the upgrade to me and will WinXP allow me to upgrade despite the different serial number, or possibly a different version such as Win 98SE?

    You most likely could install it on another machine, but it is illegal to. The upgrades are issued to the machine and serial number.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
