You don't need too. It changes the next install. Once you format xp & reinstall just reactivate it again. Don't worry. I've done it heaps of times with no problems.

There is a utiity that lets you recover that key out of your installation (assuming you have a working OS that used that key). Let me find it and attach it in a minute.

Note to the other trigger-happy mods: This program only reads the CD Key you used for installation out of the registry. It is NOT a keygen, nor can be used to make or find keys other then the one installed on your system. Use is perfectly legal on your own machine.

write your keys down someplace safe... those booklets and cd cases have a weird habit of just vanishing :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
