    I have a computer I recently built and installed Windows XP from a OEM disk I
    purchased. This replaced one I took out of service but intend to return to
    service shortly.

    Recently my new computer crashed and I had to us the XP Install disk to do a
    repair. I inadvertently used the disk from the computer taken out of service.
    Subsequently I activated the new computer using the product number from the
    computer which is not currently in service.

    Do I need to re-repair my new computer and activate the original product
    number?

    Is it working?

    Did it activate?
