XP Product KEY

  dickens 09:58 03 Dec 2005

The version of XP Pro I have does not pass the Microsift genuine test. I have purchased a REAL GENUINE disc vis Microsoft and dont want to do a full reload. Can I just change the product code?
Thanks Raymond

go though the set up and when it wont acctivate ring microsoft on the number it gives you thay will give you an acctivation key.. you have to put all the numbers in and its a pain but stick with it you get a human in the end (i dont think the free phone number works)

Chegs ®™ - how do you go about that?

I'm just curious if dickens doesn't "want do do a full reload", how does he change the product code in an already installed Os?

De Marcus™ -thanks for that; do I take it that this works one regular XP installs also?

Yes,it works on Home/Pro Retail/OEM.There are also software apps(MagicJellyBean)that can be used,although I have an older version which can do it,the newer version(got that to)only seems to reveal the key used,not allow changing of it.

Thanks for those clarifications; all added to my memory for reference!

Thanks for all the chat, I will try MagicJejjyBean as the version I found does have a change code option
