    Hi all

    i am just wonderin wether i can use my xp recover disk on a another computer, the cd says only to be used with an Evesham computer, does that mean the dsc will only have the drivers an stuff 4 the evesham comp? or does it have the full xp on it?

    And Where Can i get the cd changer from?

    As a general rule, recovery disks are designed for the system that they were sent with. Yes, they will have all files necessary to start from scratch with a Windows XP load, but these files are a ghosted (imaged) format that won't do you much good in another machine. Also consider that when they image the recovery disk, the drivers are for the components originally installed on your Evesham rig.

    Sad but true... if you buy a PC you should force the seller to give you a REAL Windows XP disk or take your business elsewhere.
