XP Pro and Tablet PC Edition 2005 product keys change RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Ok, I purchased a Gateway Tablet in September preloaded with Vista Home Premium. With two months of usage I must say vista is terrible. So i decided to "upgrade" back to xp pro using my XP Pro cd I purchased a whiale back. I did a clean install of XP Pro and everything was find. But i cant get the full tablet experience on XP Pro and i am not going back to vista. So i need XP pro tablet pc edition 2005, but no ones sales it. So i figured if i was to download tablet edition illegally and then just use my XP License i should be fine. However, im not. My activation isnt genuine and i want it to be. My question is..is are XP Pro and Tablet Edition product keys interchangable? If not, what do you recommend I do?

    A. No.  You'll have to contact the manufacturer of your Tablet PC and request the original recovery CD.
