Windows XP Key

Hi all, I'm new to these forums so not so sure on what sort of assistance I am going to get here. I've read all forums and have not found anyone to seem to have the same issue as me.

 

I had a laptop that I bought off a friend. It had windows 98 on it.

I uploaded windows vista to it and then stupidly lost the disc.

Everything was fine for a few months and I realised I had just about had enough with windows vista so I borrowed a Windows Xp home edition from a friend. I uploaded it all the way till the point of inputting the product key.

At this point he told me he hasn't got the product key :|.

So I had Installed windows xp home without a product key, and Cannot workout how to Basically, get rid of it.

I tried loading a Windows xp professional disc ( my own), ( and yes i had the product key for once:) )

But the Windows xp Home edition product key input would not dissapear.

That is where I am up to so far.

Really looking for some helpful assistance.

Thank you all very much in advance.

Well if you have your own WinXP Pro CD then just do a format and a fresh install of the CD. That should remove any bits that were left behind by the Home install. ;)

The "borrowing" of a Windows installation disc is blurring alone the lines of warez talk, therefore we aren't going to help you with such problems -- so don't bring it up again on these forums.

 

As you've already stated you have a licensed copy of XP Pro which should've answered the question for you without starting this topic, so use your legally licensed install CD instead.

out of curiosity sake, why would you go from 98 to vista to xp pro

 

 

could a 98 machine even handle vista??????????? surely you would go to w7?

No fate but what we make

it looks like a spam template message to me.

 

It is ishan. Other forums show his post also.

 

Sometimes instead of just deleting and banning, it can serve a purpose to leave the post. In this case it lets folk know spam links will be removed and that piracy and warez are a no go on this forum.
