I want to Validate! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - I have been a bad boy.  I recently purchased a new Intel Imac, installed bootcamp and am running Windows XP... only it is not the copy that I purchased!  I purchased XP Home for my laptop (on its last legs), but when I did the bootcamp thing, I had heard that XP Home wouldn't work, so I used my roommate's copy, which is Professional.  Wondows doesn't like his code, so I now am breaking the rules! 

    Then I heard that Home would, in fact, work with Bootcamp - though I'm still not sure of the dual core processor...

    Well, I don't like the idea of having a non-validated OS (and neither does Microsoft!), so I would like to upgrade my purchased copy - as the laptop is not long for this world.  I'd rather not reinstall on the mac, because it will be a big pain.

    Question: is there a way to upgrade my official copy to Professional, get the key, and validate this Bootcamp with just the code, not reinstalling?

    Wanting to be good...
