    Hi people,

     

    I was asked by my friend to re-instal his windows using the cd which it came with,

    The pc looks like a home built unit and his cd was a dell resource cd with the windows on it,

    So i proceeded to format and install the windows he was using on his pc and ...

    Lo an behold it wont accept the key which he gave me (together with the dell cd)

     

    I'm stuck now and dont know how best to proceed, here is the data from the ms diag util...

  • DocZaf,

     

    Yes that is correct.  The Dell CD's for Windows XP Professional must be reinstalled on the same Dell machine as it was originally configured for based on the End User License Agreement (EULA).   

     

    Windows License Type: OEM SLP
    Windows OS version: 5.1.2600.2.00010100.0.0.pro

     

    Your OEM license for XP comes with certain restrictions that make it less flexible, and therefore less expensive, than the retail license for XP.  One of the limitations is that the license is "married" to the computer onto which it is first installed, and by the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) it is not permitted to be moved to any another computer.  In order to read your EULA, click Start>Run, type winver and click OK, then click on the link for the license terms or EULA.

  • Sorry, but a Dell Windows XP Reinstallation CD and its product key can only be installed and activated on the original Dell computer it came with.  Your friend will need to purchase a conventional "Full Version" Windows XP CD and license.
