Hello everyone.

I am building a new PC, so I have a formatted HDD without an OS at the moment.

I have an old copy of Windows Vista Ultimate sitting in a drawer, complete license legal legit copy. Not an upgrade or anything. I also have a complete copy of windows XP pro, the same story. Well, I see that MS is selling the win 8 os ugprade for $39.00 is possible to install Vista or XP on a modern computer and have it boot long enough to activate and do a new install? Or will there be incompatabilities with the newer hardware?

MainBoard GA-970-UD3,
AMD 8350,
16gb 1866 Ram (2x8gb Viper III) ,
AMD 7770 1gb.

Cheers.
