Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Bought a new computer(used) had no OS, tried to install OS from my old,
with Windows Xp Pro (Dell) recovery disk ,
It worked till start up now it wont accept COA Key,
downloaded a key finder, ITS THE RIGHT KEY!!!!
when I try to register and validate It say's KEY ENTERED WRONG!
bought a new hard drive, and a data transfer kit will see if this works,
question is this, will the bios on new computer stop the transfer of the os from old system to new?
again? i am assuming this is the problem.
The problem is with the actual key that you are using. Not your
computer, or the components inside of it. If you are certain that you
are using a valid key Its likely that you have a a key for windows
home, and you are trying to install windows professional, or visa
versa... Either way, If all else fails, you could replace the OS (
Buy or download) much easier than the hardware inside your computer.
Basically your computer is fine, just get a valid OS. If your adventurous try ubuntu.
Hope this helps!
