    Please follow these steps for assistance:

    Step 1 is to run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response in this thread.

    Step 2 is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of  Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

  • Realrebelus,

     

    For many reasons, your best course of action is to contact HP support and order a set of Recovery CDs for your computer, and then use the recovery CDs to put XP Home back onto the computer.

     

    See this HP article for more info:  http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3253920&lang=en&docname=c00810334

     

    If you want to try to activate the installation you have right now that was done with a systembuilder/OEM CD, do a telephone activation.  The PK on the HP CoA will not automatically activate over the internet, so you will have to do a Telephonic Activation as described in this MS KB:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307890.

  • Realrebelus,

     

    There may be two separate folders on the root of your C:/.  Remove the old one. Also you can post here:  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertzone/newsgroups/reader.mspx  and get guidance.  Have a great day.

     

     

    Thank you
