I guess what I'm talking about is activation, whatever it is that requires me to have to contact MS whenever I change HW.
I was thinking that if I made a copy of the CD, replacing the setupp.ini so it thought it was a corporate edition, and then tracked down a corporate key. I might be able to bypass activation.

changing the pid justs changes the look during the setup
PS I have access to a volume licence but it looks like the Retail version during the setup

I thought that activation is a must no matter which license you have.Using [email protected] might make your genuine WinXP VIRAL.
What about the difference between MSDN Volume licensed and corporate version?
I can tell the difference between OEM, RETAIL, UPGRADE, CORPORATE , but not MSDN one.

Not 100% about that path
If I can find that info again I'll link to it

MS relieced that key as the testers had to re-regester on every config that they tried!

I already gave bill a thousand dollars of my hard earned cash that day, I'm afraid that if he gets any more, he's just going to explode - ergo, we'll be doing him (and me) a big favor! [email protected]

Question - Why would an OS be particular to a bit-wise, sector-by-sector copy, derrived soley from the physical disk geometry? Obviously, the OS wouldn't even be live, ergo, you'd be booted from a 98 / ME floppy and running DOS anyway. I've been doing the same thing on EMC and Clarrion Fiber DASD through ESCON and now TCP/IP channels for several years. It works wonderfully, checksums the results for absolute commitals, it's lightening fast ( like 10 minutes in PC land for 10 GB exact replica) - It is one or two levels under the OS, under the filesystem.
Please clarify (perhaps you're referring to the "DataMover" app (when c turns into d, change all references.. I wouldn't trust that either - even in a 16 bit and fat simplified environment.)
In regards to "it only works if the machines are almost identical..", then how does an Enterprise do a large install with such a boiler plate mechanism in place? I've been at a few large shops, their PC architectures vary widely.

On the first boot after install is complete, boot into SAFE MODE
(thats the F8 key) and open regedit.exe
Locate this following key:
change the "RegDone" key value fron 0 to 1
Then find this key:
change "Activation Required" key value from 1 to 0
Close regedit and do the following:
Go to StartReboot
