P.s. Make sure you get the key from right off the disc. Not the one copied to your computer during isntallation.
Let me know if it works

Have you found a crack? I'm also looking for the same information. Did anyone try Matt's method? (If you want to bypass that anoyig activation heres what you do. Go on to windows cd that you used to install it. Go to folder I386 and then look for the file unattend.txt. At the bottom of this file it will say "Producr Key" use that number instead of the product key on the box or whatever and it will bypass the activation screen.
) I wonder if that works? especially with Window XP with SP2.

It's a full cd rip i dl'd off of the net.
I need to get SP1 on there..
Can i change the Reg located in system properties to a corporate version? Will it accept that? How do i go about doing it..? Just mod the ini file in some way? Could you provide me w/ info on how to do this or a link to a site that explains the method? I'm trying to install apache web server.. But in order to run it in XP pro I need SP1..

I've found, in my digital travels, that most people who lash out and call people thieves (or whatever) only do so to conceal the fact that they don't have any relevant information. That aside, there are those of us who payed good money for our Operating System only to have the disc lost, stolen or broken. And, before you dive into "why didn't you just get your key off your system" and all that: I would have, had I known of a way to access it without logging into XP first. DOS bootdisk can't read NTFS, so that wasn't an option. Neither was logging in. Working with User Group profiles left me stuck with none of my users able to log in (Not even the Administrator account). Reformatting would wipe the Product ID information, so it's not like I could take that path and still get my key back. So... no analog product key since the disc was stolen and no digital product key since I couldn't get into the OS to read an OS info report.
Yes, I contacted MS. Yes, they were very helpful. If you consider tree stumps helpful when it comes to passing your next astrophysics exam. They told me to buy a new disc. Sorry folks, but I'm not spending over $400 for one Operating System.
The point: If you have information, share. If you don't have it or don't wish to share it: don't post. The more you post useless items such as flames, the more cluttered you make the web for those of us who are searching for useful information.

I bought it, I paid for it, it's mine damn it. If I was leasing it I would like to know "before" I purchase it and not in the volumes of fine print during installation. Any help before billy screws me would be appreciated.

Just so people know if you have an old windozs disc. you can get an upgrade xp pro for $88 if you a student at http://www.journeyed...asp?T1=55481723 The secret is to do a clean install, which any windows disk from Me onwards will do. You have to have a prevoius M$ windows disk....
Or you can buy an oem xp pro full copy for about $130 from like newegg.com
Activation can be a PITA I know I have done it. many times. I have to call M$ 3 or 4 times b/c I have exceded the number of activations for varioous reasons...mainly due to my swapping out hardware on 2 diff machines a lot. To M$s credit they activate it over the phone and reset the number of times. The only thing is they get real rude if you copy the number down and don't enter it directly....I wonder why....

Oops, sorry. Got carried away.
So far the best idea for activation that i've seen yet, if it works, is coping the unattend.txt off of the installation cd.
