    Hi! I need help!!!
    My company(college) need to buy about 20 PC. But when discussing it with manager, manager say budget is < MYR 1000 per PC. I encourage him to buy BRANDED PC, which means the BRANDED PC normally already have licensed Windows XP, they also will give you a recovery CD. But the budget is exceed already... So, manager decide to buy custom PC, he already ordered 20 PC, but ordered 5 licensed windows XP Pro.
    My question is can 1 licensed installed and actived for all PC? The PC hardware is almost same.
    Thanks!

    No, not without purchasing a VLK(volume license key). In other words commonly referred to as the Corperate edition of XP Pro.

    Your profile says you are in Kuala Lumpur. I am sure Malaysia has authorized Microsoft resellers. MS recently announced their Genuine Advantage program is piloting in Malaysia.
