Hard drive crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a hard drive crash on my laptop and installed a new drive using a copy of XP SP-1.  I thought this had mixed blessing because I did a clean install and got rid of all the junk HP loads on their machines as a "value added service.  I re-installed all my applications.  After updating the re-installed XP SP-1with all the updates, etc, I get the Illegal Version message.  I'm not sure why and I do need to computer.  Do I have to buy a new copy of XP Pro now?  Seems like that's a bit much.
