I inherit a Dell Dimension 8400 from a friend but it doesn't come with any recovery disc. I tried reformatting and install with my OEM disc with its cd key located at the side panel but to no avail. (It state something like invalid key...) I ended up using the cd key which came with the OEM disc. Is there a way to enter the PC's COA cd key?
Next, i notice after installation, it won't boot without my xp cd loaded into the DVD-ROM. Is there anyway i can boot without the cd?
Thanks in advance.
