ordered, now not available! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Accepting that I likely have an invalid copy of xp, I anxiously readied myself for getting a "good" product ID, once my order was completed, only to later find the product is "Backordered".   What a disappointment.

  • Thanks for the reassurance.  I now have it but was somewhat "unhappy" to have received the "backordered" message...

    I'm assuming you are in the United Kingdom?

    You should still be recieving an email with your new Product Key and a tool to switch to a genuine copy of Windows.

  • You will get your product key and a link to the validation tool via email within 48 hours.

    The only thing that is back ordered is the Windows xp recovery CD that they mail to you.

    I was in the same boat as you thinking "what the hell....? "

    So I got my product key but now I'm having trouble with the validation tool.

    See post "KeyUpdateTool.exe"
