  • I would bet my paycheck that this is a counterfeit CD.  Compare what you have to this site to get an idea of what legitimate media looks like:

  • A) Yes, the counterfeits are getting very good.  Not just holo stickers, but even some embedded holos.  Based on your verbal description it sounds almost certainly fake.

    B) If you want to post an image, request to be verified here.  They will get back to you in a (relatively) short time. 

    C) 99.9% of the OS CDs on Ebay are fake.  And unless you got it directly from Amazon, the same percentage applies.  And...Amazon does not sell XP CDs anymore.  No one does except for 3rd party people which are usually selling, once again, fakes.

    D) You said "nothing like xp pro with microsoft all over front".  Are you saying that the disc is not branded as a Microsoft product?  If that is the case, then it is definitely a fake.

    And to this: Whomever is running XP now is very quickly running out of time.  On April 8 2014...less than 2 months from now, Microsoft will stop ALL support for XP.  No more security updates of any kind will be released.  The time to upgrade is NOW.
