pc came with xp professional installed... but all my software back up disks have vista business on them RRS feed

  • Question

  • i need an xp professional reinstall disk, because i paid an extra $150 to not have vista installed on my laptop. All my reinstallation disks have vista. so i read how to open the reinstall preinstalled software already on my lenovo. only problem, my product registration key is for vista business.. which i dont have installed. is there any way to find my current product key? i tried going to my computer/control panel/system/ and general tab. the product key listed belew my owner name is the 20 digit key for vista.. i dont understand how to just fix xp pro.

    any help please!!!! after i get my computer back to working like new... i was going to make the switch to windows 7 anyway. but i wanted to get my pc reformatted first. i've already backed up all info i needed from my laptop.
