Okay...here's one for you. I'm not expecting anyone to actually help me out with this...but I need some assistance.
My brother gave me a copy of his Windows XP pro disk He also has Media Center...and I need a serial number/activation code. His serials won't work on mine for some fun reason...maybe its because its activated? Obviously...this is not ethical...but I have no resort and wanna give a valliant effort before I end up having to spend 200+ on a new operating system
His S/N should work with out a problem, you should try to call the 1-888 number. when it asks you to activate the copy chose to do it by phone. It'll give you 8-9 sets of digits to give to the automated operator. If that doesn't work Win XP media ed is only 125 :-)
well then...does anyone want to mail me a copy of their XP disk with a serial number? I won't register it. I have a legitimate copy of 2000 professional, but its not agreeing with my new MP3 player or a lot of other things I want to run.
