It previously had ubuntu installed and would not allow me to install windows ontop because the GRUB stops it for some reason.
I completely wiped the HD using DBAN
Now i tried to install XP Home SP3 onto the computer and the installed went through fine until it came to the Input your windows cd key
I tryped in the ck key that is on the side of my computer (on the little yellow lable) and it said that my key was not valid!
I recchecked twice i had input the correct cd key but to no avail.
the computer had previously been installed with Home SP2 or very unlikely SP1.But i did not have a installed cd for this so i borrowed a SP3 off a friend.
Does any1 know of any reason why my cd key would not be accepted just because the installed is sp3? is there anyway i can change/alter my key to make it accepted>?anywhere i can find an iso of sp2 to try the cd key with that?
all comment appreciated
