windows xp sp2 oem RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Mod, help me please. I bought an xp oem but I can't pass validation. I can't download anything.

    Is it because I made my own computer? I bought this xp with a blue book and it is sealed in plastic.

    Can it be possible that someone used the cd key pasted on the plastic before? I just thought

    one cd key is for that cd only.
