|My computer recently got a virus and I had to totally reformat. I have an HP a1253w. I used to have Windows XP Media Center 2005, but my computer didn't come with an XP CD.|
So I borrowed a CD from my brother. The CD I'm trying to install is Windows XP Home Edition. I put the disk in a functional computer and opened it. I went into the I386 folder and opened unattend.txt.
I entered the code it provided to me when it came time on the Windows XP Home Edition Setup prompt, but it's telling me that the product key I've entered is invalid. I've checked my spelling numerous times, and also used the product key that's currently stickered on my computer.
Why is it that the disks own key wont work? I'm not online at all, as Windows hasn't even finished setting up.
