Does anyone know how you reactivate your XP if you uninstall and format it off your system. :(

When you reinstall it you will have to re-activate it

If you reinstall the OS on the same computer, you'll need to reactivate. Since the hardware hasn't changed, you can reactivate through the Internet.



Windows XP, WPA creates a nonunique value based on up to ten pieces of information from your video card, network card, SCSI controller, hard drive, CPU, and memory configuration. The tool then uses a combination of the 25-digit product ID code and the nonunique value to create a number, which Microsoft exchanges for a code that activates your copy of the OS.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times withouth having to reactivate, others have had to reactivate. No big deal either way, MS won't give you a problem.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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
