  • We purchased a computer with Windows 7 and a downgrade of XP.    I re-installed XP from the disc's and now it is asking for an activation key.  The key that came on the computer is for windows 7 and isn't working.  How do I get the XP working?

  • Only Windows 7 Professional edition has downgrade rights to Windows XP Professional.  So the question is: did your new computer come with Windows 7 Professional?
