Ok I admitt it I am unorginized, :whistling: Darned Wife is right :blink:
Heres the deal, I have two computers both running windows xp and of course two sets of disks for it.
Problem is I want to put in a bigger hard drive on one and start with a complete reinstall but I don't know which disk set of Xp to use {I never marked them} Is there a way to tell which set goes with which computer???

The easist method is to download Aida32 and install it. It will give you the product key used on the computer. Match that up with the correct cd. A newer key finders is here.


I have bought some 10 packs of windows XP OEM cd's and ended up getting the keys mixed up. It did not seem to matter, when i was activating windows, which key i used so i just taped a key tag to each CD.
