Cannot validate Windows XP after installing new boot drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a new boot drive after the old one developed a problem with the boot file. I installed the new drive as the master disk and used the old drive for the slave. I tried to upgrade to SP-2, tried to validate the software when the window came up and failed the validation test. I bought my Windows XP copy at Office Depot and never had a problem.  What gives?

  • Please run the diagnostics tool, it'll better help figure out whats going on.
