Sorry to hear you're having the problem dayneh88. Kudos for buying your own copy of XP. The problem it that each flavor of XP has it's own flavor of CD key. XP Pro Corp needs a corresponding key type; XP Pro Retail needs a corresponding key type, etc. If you want to check to see if the key you have will work before using the guide on the front page start an installation by going to the i386 folder and running the winnt32.exe file... choose the 'upgrade' option. You can enter your key and see if it's valid before any file copying is done. If it's valid then you can close out setup and use the guide. Good luck.

Like Lonman said each 'flavour' :) of XP needs its own key.

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
