I think you'll need to install on formatted hd then.

I had a similar problem with my copy. The product key printed inside the WinXP folder didn't work. phoned up Microsoft and found about 5 different code numbers on the packaging and cd. Eventually the guy I spoke to got a product key that worked. Strange, considering the copy of XP I had was brand new and still factory sealed!
