Sounds like you have 2 legitmate choices.

Either install WIndows ME on the system since that is the OS that shipped, or purchase and install a retail copy of Windows XP

Changed hard drive can not get product key code to activate windows


When you put the product key in, do you get back an error with a phone number? If so call the phone number and explain you have changed the hardware in the computer. They should provide you with a new validation code.
If not, there is a choice for over the phone registration. Use this choice call the phone number. You will need to imput the code on your screen. An operator should come on at the end. Explain the hardware change to the operator and you should get a new validation code.

Hope this helps

How can I reboot a Compaq Presario 686S1. It has a Windows 98 Sticker on it, and when it starts up it has Win xp pro. sp1. it won't dowload the updates, and it says the product key is not valid.


Dear sir,
There is nothing wrong with a newer version of windows installed in your PC. the Latest the Better.. But if you still want Win 98 on your system, just have reinstalled... The serial key you want is written on the back of the CD you get with the system
Thanx

I lost my windows xp disc, get new one?


yes, your more than likely running hp home edition. so what you need to do is find someone with a xp home edition OEM software. you will install the software with that key and then when you have to register the software what you do is go to the telephone option then click change product key and use the key that is on your computer. it will update and then register it

Well XYZ if you had XP already on your computer and it worked, then there is no reason to go back to Windows Me 2000, but you do need to get ahold of the person who installed the XP version and have him reinstall it. You will have to Activate that one also within 30 days or it will do the same thing again. Or if you have someone with Win 2000 that will have to be reinstalled too. Regardless of which windows you decide on it has to be installed fresh. As for the Error Message windows cannot validate your version of windows is what they are telling you. I had that problem for so long I finally got tired of the **** and validating over the phone I finally got my XP that doesn't need validating. I do however have the validation code for all windows, send me your e-mail address and I will mail it to you. You will probably have to accept it before it will allow you to get it. After I send you the code I will remove your e-mail address for I have no need for it, Right? The code won't work for the windows alreadry on your computer, you need a fresh copy to install for the code to work. Let me know who you are when you write me so I don't delete your message. something like it's me, XYZ.
Good Luck

The code you have typed if for Vista Operating System from Microsoft. If Vista will ask for product key code then this key will be valid. Other than its valid for any one else product.

So, please can you tell me where you try to use this product key?
