You might want to re-think that idea. I don’t know a great deal about Microsoft licenses, but I do know that you are going to have to register that XP copy either thru the internet or call them. If that copy of XP has been used already, you are going to have to call Microsoft to get the registration number to activate the copy. This will require you to give them the serial number (or what ever they call it) and if they track that back to your dad’s company, he could get into some serious trouble.
