Question by Brandon: Will a Dell OS work with a Compaq desktop and an Averatec laptop.?
I have two OS CDs one with Vista one with XP. They both say for distributation with a new DELL PC only. Well my question is if I wipe the harddrive of both my desktop compaq and the averatec laptop will I be able to install these OSs on my empty computer. If so can anybody tell me what a good harddrive wipe is.

You can try but most likely they will NOT work. They are usually “tied” to the hardware in the Dell computers.
