Before contact Microsoft see if you are able to borrow a friends XP Pro disk, then try again with your product code.

if you are unable to borrow a disk or if your code still does not work then contact Microsoft for further advise.

Don't be tempted to download any Microsoft OS disk from the Internet, you simply will not be able to tell if it has been altered for nefarious reasons.

Cannot Install WINDOWS LIVE ONE CARE


what version is the one you are installing? first check where does it apply? is it for 32 bit or 64 bit? OneCare does not support the Windows XP Professional 64-bit operating system. Only Vista 32 bit and 64 bit. Hope this helps. Please dont forget rating. For better understanding please read this:

Unmountable boot volume error


if you know any body who has a copy of xp then you can use their cd, but use your product key number that is on a sticker on the underside of your laptop, but if you had xp home dont use xp pro cd as it wont work when you input the product key. This is quite legal as you purchase the XP licence number and not the cdrom so see if you can lend one from somebody.
