unauthorized product key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to repair win xp with original disc but xp has been updated to service pack 3 ( from sp 1 original). So I booted from disc reinstalled windows but keep getting unauthorized product key message with on-line or phone registration. Have done this in the past but forgot how I did it. Lastime however, I do remember having activation loop problems. What next?

    Use phone activation, and speak to an activation rep if you have problems with the automated system.
