Installing W xp on the Player from the Recovery CD of a different computer?

Jump to solution

Thanks to the help I received here W xp runs on the Player using the Windows XP Mode 🙂

I am however wondering whether W xp could also have been installed on the VMware Player (or Workstation) from the file 60GT290E.ACR on the W xp Recovery CD of one of my previous computers, an Acer TM 290 E? The installation of this W xp would now obiously be on a different, newer computer. For your information: In addition to the mentioned recovery file the same CD contains also a sort of "general" file containing:


;Windows XP Home Edition Preload for Acer TM290E Series
;German Version 6.0.0
;
;RCD P/N: XX.T290E.60G
;
[Main]
OS=Windows XP Home Edition
Model=TM290E
Lang=German
Version=6.0.0
PN=XX.T290E.60G

That is an OEM Manufacture Specific Disc and may only be installed on the product it came with! Smiley Wink
