    Your friend did you no favors on the reinstall of the OS.  He has installed a retail version of XP while you have an OEM license and the two are incompatible.  You should have had him use the original OEM disk that Dell provided with the computer.  If you no longer have that disk then contact Dell for a hopeful replacement.

    Your "friend" did not do you any favors because s/he installed Windows XP Media Center Edition using a hacked and cracked installation disc.  We know that because there is no such thing as a retail license for XP MCE.  Such hacked discs are known to be chock full of rootkits and malware and should not be used.

    Please take LVTravel's advice and contact Dell to order a replacement disc.  Here is the link:  http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&redirect=1

    Unfortunately, the Product Key Updater utility cannot update XP Media Center Edition Product Keys.

    You may be able to use the Product Key Update tool to work the oracle - assuming that your COA Key is also for Media Center edition.

  • I can confirm that the key used is not valid, see the posts from LVTravel and Dan.
