  • Your system was installed using a blocked volume key license, This means a VLK has been stolen and/or leaked into public use and is no longer valid, You have to use a Genuine Product Key to install your syste.

  • You need to obtain a proper replacement Windows XP CD so you can use it with "your" Product Key.  The "cracked version" of Windows XP you currently have installed is a non-genuine, illegal Volume License version of Windows XP.  Once you obtain the proper Windows XP CD, you need to perform a "clean install" of Windows XP.

    How to replace lost, broken, or missing Microsoft software or hardware:
