    I've only got 1 day to activate/ validate Windows XP.  Everything seemed okay until I downloaded Service Pack 3.  I got the PC from a friend, but I now live in another town.  It seems unfair that you should ask for a Product Key several years after someone installed Eindows XP.  Is this all a ploy to disenfranchise people, so that they are forced to buy Windows 7?

    The Product Key that I was trying to typr in I subsequently noticed was for Windows Millennium edition.  It seems that that was originally installed on the PC, and then someone updated to Windows XP later.

    Is there any chance you could activate Windows XP for me?

  • Hello GDJames,

    If the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) on the computer is for Windows Me, then the computer is still licensed to run Windows Me.  I suggested that you contact Tiny computers to see if they could supply you with the Recovery or Reinstallation discs that would match the version and edition of Windows on the CoA.  If you install Me on the computer using the Tiny Recovery CD, it would yield a Genuine installation of Windows on that computer.

    In order to run Windows XP on this computer, you will have to purchase a licensing kit and install XP using the genuine media and product key that would come with the licensing kit.  You would have the option of a full retail kit or a systembuilder/OEM kit.

    A third option would be to install Windows Me, then purchase a retail upgrade license for XP, which are less expensive than a full retail license.

  • Is this all a scam to scare people to buy extra Microsoft software?

    If I do nothing, will my PC still work tomorrow?

    I suppose it would, because think of the lawsuits when all those people who have bought Windows sue Microsoft when their computer is disabled.

  • Hello GDJames,

    Your computer has an installation of XP Pro, and that installation was done using a Dell XP Professional OS Reinstallation CD.

    Since your computer is not a Dell computer, the Windows Product Activation system will not activate this computer.

    Does this computer have a Windows Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) affixed to the computer?  If so please let us know what version and edition of Windows is listed on the CoA, but do not post the product key.

    The mgadiag report is showing that your computer may have been manufacturer by Tiny Computers.  Have you contacted Tiny Computers to see if you can order a Recovery or Reinstallation CD so that you can properly install Windows on the computer?

  • Hi Dan.

    Yes it is a Tiny Computer.  No I ain't going to contact them - I don't see how it is their problem.

    The Windows Certificate of Authority affixed to the computer is for Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition.

    I have taken note of the product key, in case I need it later.
