As to license keys - if the OS came with the computer, contact the vendor. If the OS is retail, contact Microsoft. Have your CD handy.

So you have a System Makers recovery Disc

And not a M$ Branded Install Disc.

The System Makers Install Disc's are Slipstreamed and only have the necessary Drivers for the Hardware that they where made for and Can Not be used on any other hardware. Even if you fit a After Market M'Board to your old system which uses the same CPU you can not use the System Makers Recovery Disc to install Windows. It simply lacks the necessary components to do this.

What you need to do here is buy a Licensed Copy of XP from your local Computer Shop. These things are Licensed to the Original Hardware only and if you use it on other hardware you are committing an Act of Piracy. :0

But none the leas if you just want a new Product Key ring the people who made the recovery Disc and ask them to help you.

Make sure that if you are running NoScipt that you allow the page, if but temporarily.

My ill-used Vista HB told me, after a year of trouble-free operation, that it was running in reduced functionality because it was an illegitimate copy (which I paid $200 for a CD at retail). Yeah, sure, MFs.

It even plastered an "illegitimate" at the lower right-hand corner.

Pay close attention to how you do it.

All is well with me this evening, after a snarling encounter.
