    Default Windows Xp =/

    well, i formated (grammer ftw) my pc recently, and i installed an orginal version of windows xp from my friend.
    everything was cool till i needed to register that windows update crap in 30 days.
    i thought it will be piece a cake since i got the serical code and everything but it seems that you can't use an original windos cd more than few times. ( yep, i wish you die Bill)
    anyway, can anyone help me get a serical code for windows xp or give me his ? on pm or reply here... it will be awesome... thanx for helping anyway

    You can use it few times, you can't register it on 2 comps <_<
    I've formatted my comp so many times before, never had any problem with this...

    Call the number they give you and tell them your trying to reinstall Windows and you get the error message. They will give you a new Serial Code. We did this at a place I used to co-op at, one guys computer we reformatted wouldnt take the new code so we called up M$ and they gave us a new Serial to install windows with

    The OP is saying that he borrowed his friends Windows XP cd, so surely he cant just ring them and say 'gift another key please' because it wasnt his to start with..... and if they block his old key and give him a new one I daresay his friend is gonna be pissed.

    Nobody is going to give you their (legit) CD KEY either, its a personal thing and its unique to you.

    So you have two choices.
    1) Buy Windows
    2) Find yourself a hacked copy - I'm using one and its not 'fried my pc', and lol @ the idea that it would.

    But I would wait for confirmation that ringing MS isnt going to result in your friends legal key being blocked.

    ages ago, if u sent ur pirate version + key, microsoft would send u back a legit key + cd. I think they have stopped this now tho

    Worst case scenario:

    1)Create 2 partitions on your hard disk, e.x. C: and D:

    2)Install Windows on C: , just a minimal installation of whatever WinXp needs to work.

    3)Create a ghost image (Using Norton Ghost) of your C: Drive, and copy it to your D: Drive.

    4)Install all the programs/games u need to your D: Drive.

    5)Use a DOS boot disk to load your Ghost Image to your C: Drive every 30 days h43r:

    It takes only 1 min to restore your whole C: drive with only WinXP installed, it doesn't take much, but it's not the best solution. It'll work though.
