I accidently installed windows xp(Not a genuine copy) and did a dual boot with Redhat which took me hours to complete. After configuring everything. I wanted to upgrade my windows to sp2. I put the cd in and it loads for about 5 minutes, then a popup comes up and says something about:
"Fail to install SP2, the windows xp you installed recently does not have a valid key"
I wanted to try and fix this problem so I went here:
^ I went to the above website to try and validate my key but it failed. It said the copy of my windows is not genuine. Yes I know that I did a very big mistake choosing the wrong XP cd to install, it's just that Redhat kinda got in the way and that I was in a rush.
But yea, if there's a way to fix this then please let me know. If not then I guess I just have to uninstall it and get a real copy of Windows XP Pro.
The thing is I don't know the procedure to uninstall windows and still keep my copy of Redhat linux intact.
Here's what I want to do. I want to uninstall my fake [bleep] wannabe windows and install another one that's a genuine copy without fiddeling/destroying Redhat. Is there a way to do this?
