    The Product ID for your installation of XP Pro indicates that it is a Volume Licensing installation of XP Pro.  As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP are Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer, so if the computer has never had a genuine OEM or full retail Windows licence associated with it, then your installation of XP could very well be a nongenuine installation.

     

    Unless the organzation that owns the Volume License Key used to install XP has specifically given you permission to use the Key, and that use is in compliance with the organization's Volume Licensing agreement with Microsoft, then your installation of XP could very well be a nongenuine installation.
