Hello Sir,

Yes this can work,

But it's better to install windows using an original disc rather than a copy one

No it will NOT work - it will install but as soon as you attempt to register the copy it will fail. You can only register the copy once. If it has been some time since you registered the ID then you may be allowed to register the new PC. But, when you try to get updates for the original PC/copy it will fail.

Win XP can be put on 3 computers using the same code.
