  • I think your on the wrong forum, however I think it's very good that you try to get a legal copy so please have a look in http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/knowthefacts/LegalizationSolutions.aspx for your options.


    I you have a working but illegal copy of XP Pro installed the WGA or GGK option are probably your best choice. Otherwise you'll have to acquire a retail or OEM license.
