trouble with Genuine licence original RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have an original licence for window XP pro 1-2 cpu (HP). This licence was provided with my compaq nc8000.

    At the origin, an English version of win xp pro was installed.

    But I lost the CD (furnished with the pc) and I've installed an other version of xp pro (in french).

    Since, my licence isn't accepted.

    Is it possible that my license is only for an English version of XP pro ?

    Or my licence isn't legal since my new installation ?


    Thank you.


    Best regards
