Full retail and volume license installs of Windows XP SP3 now available to MSDN / TechNet Plus subscribers

    Question

  • Quick question: Is the Volume license install cd SHA1:66ac289ae27724c5ae17139227cbe78c01eefe40 ?
    Or
    SHA1:1c735b38931bf57fb14ebd9a9ba253ceb443d459 ?

    Just want to make sure I grab the correct install cd from the site.

    You can see "vl" in the filename after "cd_"

    They may have made a mistake when naming the files.   The should add "VL" in the file description of the volume license download.

    In order to distinguish retail and volume license, use the drop down menu to list "Professional-Retail" or "Professional-VL".   This will give you the correct file.

  • This may seem like a dumb question, so please go easy on me.

     

    That said, is this the only was to purchase new product keys for xp?

     

    I have a retail version of xp sp2, and I just want a few more product keys, that I could use if the need ever arose.
