Activating my Key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i had installed WinXP on my computer long time and i thought that it is genuine.

    today after installing some updates message poped up that it was mistake.

    so i decided to use another product key i have (im student and my collage is in MSDN academic alliance).
    but for me is imposible to reinstall whole system right now.

    please is there any other way to "legalize" my windows with my key???

    We're working on a tool that will convert your product key to match your COA. For now, I would either filing a support request to get this done (requires some harder changes and such that we can walk you through) or reinstalling Windows.

    I know this isn't quite what you want to hear, but thats the most I can say for now :(.
