I have TI9 which I use for backups. It works well and I'm happy with it. I have received a tempting offer from Acronis to buy the workstation version, with universal reinstall, for $50. I have an Acer laptop, a Dell PC and a home built PC, all with XP. My question is this - if the Dell or Acer "die", will I be able to reinstall the image to another PC, because the OEM XP installed on them came with the PC's and is I believe "tied" to the BIOS. I have in the past tried to upgrade an OEM license to a full version, but was told by Microsoft that it could only be done by buying a full license and carrying out a full reinstall - Is there any point in buying universal reinstall in this case? Many thanks.
