|Thanks for the replies. The computer is a Gateway 300SE LTD. I did a search on the Gateway website and they don't seem to be selling recovery software.|
I found the XP EULA online. I guess this answers my question:
To use Software identified as an upgrade, you must first be licensed for the software identified by Microsoft as eligible for the upgrade. After upgrading, you may no longer use the software that formed the basis for your upgrade eligibility.
I would be the one who actually owned the eligible software. Another thing, I didn't know I wasn't supposed to be using the previous software. I used Windows ME to upgrade to XP on one computer, and left ME on another.
