Not sure what you mean.

 

If the key from your machine won't activate and you ring support they will give you another one if yours is a genuine key.

 

It's all done by a strange automated telephone voice so have everything ready, pen, paper, telephone where you can easily press number buttons and a large coffee :)

I've always found 'her' oddly sexy - not as sexy as Siri - but soothing (may be a better word).

... this created key from own xp before calling strange german windows-uschi :-) ... can i read out this from windows?

I've read that one can in order to avoid these recurrent reactivation... I forgot to write down these key from "A to G" for possible later reinstallation ;-) with the same hardware...

Hello trium - I realize I'm a bit late to the party, and I'm glad to hear that you managed to activate WinXP successfully. In the future, if you ever want to do another clean install of WinXP without going through the hassle of telephone activation, there is a way to backup and restore the two files needed for offline activation. The instructions are in the following link: http://netsecurity.about.com/od/windowsxp/qt/aaqtwinxp0829.htm
