unable to change key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi: My ThinkPad T60P laptop crashed, so I need to install XP PRO which it was the original OS but I  lost the recovery disks so I used my copy a genuine XP PRO that I have installed in another computer. When it fisnished installation I tried to use the key # in sticker in the back of my laptop but  said "It was the wrong key" so I put the key # which it came with disk. Later I tried to change the key number with system tools but it said the key was mispelled. What I did wrong? Thank you

    note that you MUST enter the Key from the COA sticker on the T60P – not one found using a keyfinder tool
