If there is anyone you know that has Windows XP Pro CD, you can use their CD-key. You'll have to do another fresh install of windows. If your friends CD was registered more than 4 times you'll get a MS window to register. You'll choose you're state & a toll free number will come up for you to call. Most of the call will be automated. You might end up with a real person. Just say you only have 1 PC & you replaced a dead hard drive. MS will assign you a new key. Easy as pie. (You just need a friend with a real MS CD).
