In a recent house move my Win XP Home CD got separated from its case and paperwork and I have lost its serial/key number. I now want to install it on a PC I have built for my son. Any ideas, please ? Notes: It is a full, original, Win XP CD, purchased in the USA when I used to live there. It is not currently installed on any other machine.
Yes, i have bookmarked the site it will come in handy, its a shame how the innocents may suffer i hope Microsoft will realise that there are some genuine people out there that have a bit of a "stonewall" problem and there is a satisfactory outcome..
I spoke to Microsoft and they were understanding and helpful. Having satisfied themselves with the hologram part number off the disk, and taking all my personal details, they gave me a new serial no! Good old Microsoft !
