Windows XP install. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have windows XP installed on my PC. I have even legal XP CD with serial key. But, as the CD is damaged, I had to install OS from another CD. Unfortunately, that CD was not legal. Now, I want to make my XP legal with the serial key without formatting again. Is there any way?

  • After checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows XP issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows XP forum:
