Windows XP SP1 Will Not Install on Known Pirated Installations

In an email sent to OEM system builders MS tells:

When released, Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Windows XP will not install if it identifies the underlying Windows XP installation as a known pirated installation. SP1 identifies known pirated installations by their Product IDs. The Product ID is generated from the Product Key used during install and can be found by choosing My Computer, then Properties, and viewing the General tab.

I agree the news story is worthy, however, statements that it will work on pirated XPs with valid generated keys, is not. Thats warez, and illegal, hence my warning statement.

:cool:

You guys got it wrong, you do not FIND corporate keys you generate corporate keys. thats real different, and just admit microsoft has been defeated by pirates ever since windows 1.0.
