    I want to wipe factory installed XP from my laptop, install ubuntu and then reinstall OEM XP in VM. I have already created an installation disk from per-installed OS.

    I want to ask if it is against MS EULA in any means or not?

    Thanks

    aigle,

    Sounds OK to me.

    Have you considered leaving WinXP in place and installing Ubuntu as a dual boot?

    Yes but VM is ideal for malware testing.
