    Hey there. My friend wants to install Windows Xp Pro, and it's a burnt copy. I heard a rumor that you can only boot your computer 50 times and then you have to call Microsoft for a new registration number. Is this true? Should i advise him not to do it? It supposedly is a corporate edition if that matters.

    Thanx:)

    If it was a legal copy that was purcahsed at a store, after 30 days you have to activate it. If the same CD-Key is already activated, you have to call Microsoft and explain why the same key is being used on a different computer.

    If it is an illegal corporate release, there should be no activation.

    If it's a corporate copy there is no activation on it due to the fact that they are multiple license (they are installed on more than one computer). This is directly from someone I know who works for Microsquish. If it's a burnt copy and it's a good image, then enjoy.

    I agree with the whole thing...

    am using my brothers copy of XP coz didn't see a point of buying 2 of em if we are in the same damn building... I know what the license says but I am a student and I'll be damned if I have to pay friggin 200 bucks for an OS... ok ok I exagerated :)

    anyhoo for your info you can just say register later and use windows XP (i have the professional)... reason we got it is coz his winME was shyte and always caused probs... right now I dual boot with winxp and win2k... win2k is my first love but I can't get the lovely xp icons onto win2k to look like the originals... they are emulated but they don't look perdy enough...

    you know how it is with janitor's everything has to look perdy and prim and propah...

    ah... its tea time.. anyone want a biscuit?

    To set the record straight, anyone who continues to post warez links or offers up IN OPEN FORUM access to same through other means WILL be banned. This site is for a much larger community of users searching for answers to thier XP related debugging issues. Good catch xsivforce.
