Windows XP pro COA

  1. I probably shouldn't have but I bought a Windows XP pro coa without the media and am stuck getting it installed. I have XP pro on another machine and thought I could just use that disk. During installation a screen comes up and says Product Key is for another version or invalid version. Any idea how to figure out from the Product Key or COA numbers what version I should have and how to get it. The people at the place I bought the COA are uncommunicative, imagine that. Thanks for the assist. JM

    most likely the COA you purchased is for and OEM version and the one you are trying to use it on is not.
