would use a upgrade vista. make my xp cd useless

i like to know what fact, and what friction

i just just got a new computer in June and it came with xp home sp2 full, and there reason i need a new computer was my MOBO on old computer die on me and on that computer i run xp home ( before sp1 and sp2 ), i use a xp upgrade ver from 98se

ok my question, the web full of site saying that if you upgrade xp to vista, you can no long use that xp on you computer any more, even if you do not like vista

her is some of what a lot of site are writing

If you choose to purchase an upgrade version of Windows Vista to upgrade XP, you will no longer be able to use that version of XP. Either on another system, or as a dual-boot option. The key will be invalidated, preventing activation.

\now is that true or not--- would use a upgrade vista. make my xp cd useless

i sure wish MS would clear this point up

 My System Specs

IDK but if you are putting Vista on any system I would highly suggest a clean install as opposed to an upgrade ;)

FYI, unless you have a dual core CPU, 2+ GB of RAM, and a decent GPU, it's not worth upgrading to Vista, IMO.
