genuine advantage RRS feed

  • Question


    I have the genuine advantage disk, however it will not load. I keep getting the screen asking me to validate windows. I want to do a clean install.

  • Pedrocop,


    I would like to provide additional information along side Carey.   “How to install or upgrade to Windows XP” located @ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941/en-us and http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/install.mspx


    I am curious about why you can not validate. Have you received any error codes or messaging whatsoever as why you can not validate?  Make sure you back up any and all data prior wipping the system. Depending on whether the computer is custome built or a commercial built system you could call the manufacturer for any assitance regarding the reinstallation of the operating system.



    Take care
