|I repaired a computer that had XP installed using my XP disk; I didn't have the disk used for the original installation. I thought I would be able to use the product key taped to the side of the system unit, but it doesn't work.|
I was using Recovery for something minor and would like to get back into Windows, but each time the computer starts it wants to continue the setup. Since this is not my computer, I didn't want to use my key on it.
I read that maybe something can be done with boot.ini but I'm not sure if it applies here.
Thanks for any help.
