I need to repair a computer running Windows XP Home (OEM). I don't want to do a full re-install of the operating system, just a repair install.
The system belongs to someone else, and they don't have the original disk. I've always used at least XP Pro for my own systems, so I don't have an install disk to use. But I do have an MSDN XP Home disk that I've used to install VMs for software testing. Can I do a repair install from this disk?
I'm asking on two levels: both will it work, and is it legal?
