    Ok...I have a Windows XP SP1 Slipstreamed CD. The guy that sent it to me said that it was like the edition where you could use it an infinite amount of times..

    So..Im thinking of having a small business of passing out flyers and helping people with there computers and stuff..just for a little extra cash. Would it be very dangerous if I reformatted like 20-30 peoples computers with this same CD? If its not...what do you think a reasonal amount to charge is for a reformatt and having to reinstall all the drivers and such?

    If one of those people is a crybaby or stupid you're f'd. Oh just checked out your age. Just as long as they cant try you as an adult who cares? Just remember M$ will go after anyone.

    Don't use the same key everytime ! Use a generator . $20.00 dollars an hour sounds about right. Take you two hours to install and get their updates . No cheques ......cash only . More if they get a cd of Xp pro corp.

    how would one of them being a crybaby or stupid get me in trouble? And like..it doesnt need to be activated or nething...and i can always do updates on all the computers i use it on...so i think it would be ok...What kind of generator...doesnt the cd key have to match my version like coorperate or pro or w/e

    to say it simply, if you do that, you're utter shit.

    a reasonable amout to charge them is fucking 0.

    Ok say they have a legal copy and need you to reinstall said copy! How much would you charge the neibour, or uncle Bob's friend from work ?

    Edit: And lets pretend the dumb caulk suckers forgot to bring thier mobo cd with the drivers? Why much then?

    then it's up to you.
    but if you're charging someone for media what was shared freely to you in the first place, you're a fuck.

    I should add I'v never charged anyone anything. But I ask for a pack of 10 blank cd's . Because if I do the work thay will need back up's . But our young friend is talking about a business , To me thats a difference right or wrong .
