No XP PRO CD but I still have the Product Key RRS feed

  • Question


    I recently purchased some second hand PC's which I have had to format the hard drive on. Unfortunately, no CD's came with the purchase. I have tried to load windows XP from another XP disk I already had but it does not seem to accept my serial key.


    I have the original serial key as it is a sticker attached to the computer. The sticker states:


    'Windows XP professional 1 - 2cpu

    OEM Product

    X08 - 54516'


    I believe the version is XP PRO OEM SP1a.


    Can someone please inform me on the best way to proceed?


    Many thanks
