If M$ windows update does not validate your windows installation, it is probably a pirated copy. You can run Belarc Advisor (search google for it) and it will display the license key if there is one. However, just because there is a key displayed, doesn't mean it is valid, still may be a pirated copy. You can try calling M$ if you wish to dispute that.

I would suggest getting a licensed version of Windows XP. You can find legitimate WXP Pro OEM, with a license key out there on the internet for around $90.00. You could always run down to the local Compusa and by a boxed version for a highter price.
