    The PK Updater utility can only be used once with any given Product Key.

     

    You will have to wait for the WGA Kit's CD to arrive.  If you can't wait, acquire a genuine hologrammed Microsoft Windows XP Pro CDROM and do a clean installation of XP Pr using that CD and the emailed Product Key.
