  • Question

  • When I'm trying to valitdate with my OEM-verision of Windows XP Home I get the "wrong key"-error.

    I borrowed a friends CD with "Windows XP Pro SP2" so that I wouldn't have to download all these files. Can that be the cause? I also used his Windows XP Home CD for installing but I used my own key for regestring.

    Thanks in advance, Simon.

  • Well, the problem is that I didn't get any CD when I bought my PC. I bought it from one of Swedens biggest sellers of computers but still, no CD. I didn't think that you needed your own CD to install Windows, just your own key. Is it possible for me to solve the problem without that CD?

    Thanks for fast answers, Simon :)

  • 97036,

    Rerun the activation wizard (Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Activate Windows) and choose telephone activation.  You'll begin with the automated telephone activation system, and may be successful.  If you get rejected by the automated telephone system, choose the option to speak with a live activation rep, answer their questions about how you are using your copy of XP, and then they should give you a telephonic activation code to enter into the wizard.

  • Hi 97036,

    just to clarify: It lookes like you are actually trying to Activate your copy of XP Home, not Validate it's Genuine/non-Genuine status. 

    You have a Valid key and and a good copy of XP Home so everything is fine from a Legal/Genuine standpoint.  (although, I would not suggest using your friends XP Pro at the same time it is installed on your firends computer as the licance agreement is that it can only be installed on one computer at a time.)


    I did look up the activation report on your Product Key and it appears that althought it's a good key, it requires you to "Activate over the Phone" and get a Override to Re-activate.

    Note: I would not mention anything about your friends XP Pro (like you did above) as it does not relate to your current activation issue and would just muddy the water when try to explain why you need to Re-acivate. 

    Hope everything works out for you!

    Thank you,
    Darin

  • Thanks for your answer, I greatly appriciate the fast support. I've just gotten Ubuntu to work but I think I'll go back to XP as gaming on Linux = problems (sadly).
