    If its a legitimate copy of Windows, then yes, you can.
    If its not, you cant, but you wouldnt have an illegal copy of windows would you? HMMM?!?!?!?!

    How can differentiate between an illegal copy and a legal copy ?
    Isn't Win XP requires activation ? So, someone has found a way to get pass it ? :happy:

    Microsoft made a "mistake" by using activation on all WinXP except Corporate Edition. I believe the idea was that a big company with many computer really don't want to activate each workstation.

    As a result of this most of the illegal copies of WinXP out there are Corp.

    I've installed SP1 on Corp computers, it works.

    you buy a legal copy.

    We could tell you if it were for legitimate reasons, but my guess is that you have a pirate version so we can't tell you (my apologies if you do have a legal version)
