Well I quite agree User as I do not see why anyone should still want to use XP to be honest - my first post was a general comment.

1.) No - one license per pc, unless you bought the windows 7 home premium family pack-which allows 3 installations per one product key. They are not available anymore.

2.) You can download them at the digital river official Microsoft site where they have untouched Iso files: (You will need a product key to activate)

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River ę My Digital Life

3.) No, Windows 7 professional and above is required. However there are other options, like vmware player.

4.) Windows 7 support ends in 2020. See product life cycle link here:

For Q3, the OP is asking about XP Mode on W7 Home Basic...
...the answer is no.

Yes, the OP could dual boot...
...but the OP did not mention having a valid XP key?



And to answer the OP about XP's safety...
...no, XP is not safe
...XP Mode can be frozen - thus a bit safer.
thank you man . i get the point

A Few Questions
I've used Windows Media Center a couple times and like the look and feel and would use it if I had a couple of these things. 1. Is it possible to skin? 2. Is there a way to sync free tv shows and movies to it, or something along those lines? Thanks. ~Joshua~
