Problem: a slightly damaged keyboard. The "E" key didn't work, so I remapped E to another key using KeyTweak (a neat Windows-based utility). All fine, then I started re-installing Windows without noticing that the 3/£ key doesn't work either. The Windows (XP) Product Key has a "3" in it, so I can't complete the installation! IF I could re-assign the numeral "3" to another key in DOS, then I could complete installation of Windows (and use KeyTweak again). Can a anyone tell me how to do it? Thanks!
I'm NOT advocating piracy, but there are loads of XP product keys online; if you can find one of these (undoubtedly illegal) keys that doesn't require one of your dud keys, you could install, then change the code to your legit version once installed. I think the jellybean keyfinder allows you to change the XP code.
