Windows XP Professional Activation on Guest VMware Virtual Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to activate WinXP Pro on a new Win 7 HP laptop within a VMware virtual machine.  When I attempt to activate via Internet or phone it says it is not valid.  I phoned Microsoft and they said it is a valid key but the Installation ID I give them says that I am missing some device drivers.  Any help would be appreciated.

     Thanks!

  • Apparerently, you have installed an OEM version of Windows XP whose license must remain with the computer it was originally activated on and is non-transferrable.  So the question is: was this Windows XP OEM license activated on a different computer previously?
