OEM version of xp, won't validate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased a legit OEM version of xp pro.  The COA is completely legit and I purchased it from a legit company.  I am waiting to hear back from them.  Anyway, I performed a clean install on a dell system that previously had the oem version of xp home installed.  When it came time to activate, it tells me "that according to our records the number of times you can activate Windows using this product key has been exceeded" .  What could the possible problem be here.?  Is there only one possibility?  That someone from the company that I purchased it from stole the key and installed it on a system?  Or is there something else that I am missing?

  • I had the same problem earlier tonight, this time with the OEM copy of XP Home that I'd bought for a system I built myself and was reinstalling. I tried the automated phone line, which didn't work. So I kept trying until it put me through to an operator, I read the code out to him and he validated me with the correct response code.

    Make sure you talk to an operator before giving up.

    I think it's absolutely disgracefully that Microsoft puts paying customers through so much inconvenience, when I could so easily have downloaded a pirate copy. My flatmates both run Ubuntu linux and I'm definitely starting to see the appeal.
