    It's highly unlikely that MS would send out a 'free' OS disk - with or without a Key. It's more likely that the disk you have is the SP2 install disk, which is purely an update disk for existing XP installations.
    What does the disk say it is?  What does it look like? Does it have the words 'For installation only on a new PC' embedded in the hologram?
    Does your computer have a COA Sticker on it? What version and Edition of Windows is stated on the sticker? (Do not post the Key!)
