    Thanks again for the response. I understand what you are saying. However, I cannot get in on Safe Mode either i.e. it tells me the same thing, that I have to activate first. I thought having a purchased CD gave a license? ~ Thanks again.

    Unfortunately not - the license in effect is in the Key, and for OEM licenses, the Key must stay with the original machine on which it was installed (which is why it's on a sticker on the case).
    Since you say you have no COA sticker on the machine you will need a Full Retail license to be able to properly
    activate the system - and those are rarer than hen's teeth nowadays, for XP.
    With the age of the machine (2003 at latest) I would think it's unlikely to be upgradable to either Vista or Win7 (the major problem being a minimum of 1GB of RAM for both) - so you may have to start thinking about replacing the machine if you cannot acquire a genuine XP license.

    You have used the Recovery disk from a Dell PC in a PC with a Retail motherboard.
     
    The installation is therefore non-genuine, as the BIOS does not match the certificates in the install.
     
    For what version and edition of Windows is the computer licensed, according to any sticker on the case, or the Proof of Authenticity on your CD case?

  • Thanks for such a quick response. If there was a sticker on the case it is long gone. I bought the comp used so when the hard drive crashed I used the CD to my dell? I had to reboot the computer (which runs my mail server and my web server, my php5, MySQL, and Perl) in question and now since my 30 days are up I can't even log on without validation. Any other solutions at this point?

    Thank you

  • Hello cw3849,

     

    You can get in via Safe Mode.


    Having a disc and having a product key does not mean you have a license.

    No, there is no license key in the BIOS.

    The disc is merely a medium for the bits that make up the Operating System.  A license is permission from the license holder to use their product in accordance with their terms.  The terms of the Dell OEM license for XP do not permit you to move the license from the original Dell computer it came on, to any other computer.  The product activation system is in place to help enforce the terms of the license.

     

    If you can log on in Safe Mode, please try this method to reset your 30 day grace period.  (If you cannot get into Windows with Safe Mode, try Safe Mode Command prompt and then type the command below by hand.)

    Click Start>Run, type cmd.exe, press Enter to get a command prompt.

    Type or copy/paste this command verbatim and press Enter:

    rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk

    [Command must be typed exacly as above with space, caps, and comma.]

     

    If you cannot log onto Windows in any Safe Mode, then the alternatives are to backup your data using an off-line Operating System (such as BartPE or the Ultimate Boot CD) or add this disc to another computer and retrieve your data that way, and then do a clean installation of XP once more.  However I'm not sure how much good that's going to do in the end because you will never be able to activate this Dell OEM license for XP on a non-Dell computer.

    Call the Microsoft HotLine number, you can activate your key using telephone, just call the Microsoft near to your place and they will help you..
