Invalid XP Pro SP2

  Dekka123 21:57 29 Aug 2005

Because my version of Win XP Pro is invalid I have purchased a new full version from PC World. I would like to install this over my present O/S in order to keep all my programmes. Will I be able to do this.? Thanks in advance

Boor from the CD and do a repair installation. (as long as your new version is pro and not home)

Thanks AndySD for your Speedy reply. By doing a repair can I take it this will allow me to enter my new product key and activate the new software.?

Instead of installing, you could try changing the XP invali product key with your new legitimate key.

Rock XP

If that does not work, then re-instal

Thanks very much everyone for your help. I will give the Rock xp a go first that alternative would certainly be better for me. Thanks all once again.
