Im just wondering how you all are doing with it. Any bad things...good things. I have not yet had a chance to download it due to bandwidth. So i'm wondering do i need to get it?

Anybody having trouble with their key? :-)

Works perfectly , no problems at all .
I did try the cdrom afterwards ,as far as it was bootable and it setup untill the first setup screen .I do not know if it installs , and the question of working with the original key and all the rest (activation and so) .
The only thing I probably will need it for is for eventually running sfc /scannow

This is what I am doing. I made a CD-RW and it boots in my labtop but not main PC. Same for w2k SP2 and plain win XP boot CDs and they worked before. Maybe its the fact that I am running SP1. What happens is it boots and loads drivers but gets stuck when it says starting windows (just before you have to choose which partition you want to install to). Maybe if I disconnect the hard drive with the OS on it. My labtop is running SP1 1089 and dont have a problem.

I dont need to reinstall but I want to know that I could!

Well, I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I have had no luck. I've tried twice and each time I get an error message at the first setup screen that says "Internal Data Structures are Corrupt" , whatever that means. I followed the guides carefully. Anybody else get this?

I tried slipstreaming to my XP Pro Corp (legit) and my XP Pro (regular version).

I tried my cd for the second time , but now it doesn't show "press any key to boot from the cd" anymore (It still shows bootable cd a.s.o).II also tried it on my second computer and it didn't show neither , I assume my cd is of bad quality .When I start it in windows it gives the setup screen .
I do not mind because I will never need it to setup , as I never needed the ones I made with w2k sp2 neither.

I slipstreamed my copy lastnight and tested it on VirtualPC, no problems whatsoever and updates from MS were flawless.

There has been many upon many upon many confirmation's on the orginal cd key for a certain corp. ver of XP Pro is no longer valid so if it work's on your machine, and it's the ver. im thinking about then your very lucky.

As far as it not asking you to press any key too boot is a different story. Im taking it you used the sector 20 from the win 2kpro for your xp pro aswell. If you use the xp pro sector20.bin it won't ask you to press any key at all...atleast mine don't it just goes straight to setup up like the diskem1x.bin.

Has anybody tried changing the product key on a that certain corp. pro release to install and it working out??? Ive read where you can update/change the license key with a keygen and using the update license scheme...but will that work on install ???

If it don't work on a plain install then you'd have to install regular winxp...then slipstream in xp. Again i
