  • If your Windows XP CD was bundled with the computer, you have an OEM License (that you cannot use to install Windows XP on a different PC) and you have to contact the computer's manufacturer; otherwise, you have a Retail License and you have to contact Microsoft

    http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support

    and ask for a new Product Key (but it could be difficult to get a new Product Key).

    Bye.
