    well drag-on congrats on formating ur harddrive. So now you have to reinstall the ur operating system and everything else u had installed. As for the real question in this post I've attached a text file that explains what u need to do.

    how am i?

    windows XP does not requir H/W to run

    and to change CDKEY is alot more simpler then reformatting

    theres a few reasons why you would want to change the key and for legal software, say you build a new bunch of machines and you accidentially use the same key twice (stranger things happen) or some other reason. a ton of stuff loaded, do you really want to start over? yea it can be done theres info even on microsoft site. sysprep will also strip it i believe when it removes sid and users and when restart will ask you for key, users, time zone again.

    When you activate one of the comps, you won't be able to activate the second comp.

    When this happens, you use the Phone Activation option at which point you click the CHANGE CURRENT KEY button.

    That is a LEGITIMATE METHOD to change your cdkey. You do NOT need to worry about it when you install corporate.... There goes your reasoning.
