Lost XP cd license RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi,

     

    I bought my XP CD from the MS web site and have since lost the cd and the key.  I want to decommision my current machine (it's pretty old) and use my XP license for a new build on a laptop.  I only want to run one machine with the license, but I also don't want to buy the disc again since I already paid for it.  I saw in other forums that the diag tool should be run so here is the output:

  • Mcornell23,

     

    The first 5 digits of the Product ID 55276 indicate that your XP Pro CD was a retail upgrade CD.

     

    In order to install this upgrade license onto another PC, the PC must first have installed, or you must have handy the media for, a qualifying previous Windows Operating System.  Does the laptop that you want to upgrade have some flavor of Windows already installed, or do you have the media for Windows 98, NT, or 2000 Professional available?

     

    If you have the above, then you are on to the next step of acquiring the media needed to install XP Pro Upgrade.  If the current desktop computer is operational, you can run one of several utilities that gather the Product Key used to install.  Then, if you have some proof of purchase of your XP Pro Retail Upgrade, say a cash register receipt, or if you have the Certificate of Authenticity that was on the boxtop of the retail box that you purchased, you can submit that to Micosoft who will for a small fee supply you with a replacment CD.  If you have no receipt or CoA, your last resport is to ask around and borrow from friends, family, etc, an XP Pro Retail Upgrade CD.  Note that your Product Key will ONLY work with an XP Pro retail upgrade CD--all other CDs will reject it.
