  • An MSDN subscription is a special, and relatively expensive subscription service that provides access to various software.

    From the MSDN Subscription home page: "MSDN Subscriptions act as a lifeline for software developers, testers, architects, IT professionals, database engineers, and others. They provide priority access to new and earlier versions of Microsoft products, including developer tools, operating systems, server software, and productivity applications. Subscribers can use the software to design, develop, test, and demonstrate applications on as many PCs and devices as needed, which saves a great deal of expenses on software license costs during development."

    It looks like the least expensive option is $699 (US Dollars) a year.

    So, I'd say it's safe to say you don't have an MSDN Subscription.

    At this point, I'd suggest you ask on the "Install, Upgrade and Activate" forum on Microsoft Community.

  • Hello,

    This forum is for discussions and questions regarding profiles and Microsoft's recognition system on the MSDN and TechNet sites. It is not for products/technologies.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • If you have an MSDN subscription, you can login here and download XP: 

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/hh442898

    There will be a link to claim your product key as well.

    Other than that, there is no way to download XP with a serial number.
