    I don't think anybody's going to touch this thread...

    you need a new key, my friend... how you acquire it is your business..

    also, are you sure you typed it right, and are you sure it's a WinXP PRO serial and not WinXP HOME serial?

    If you could install with your key when you first used it, it will continue to work again now. If you are saying that you can'y activate it because it says the key is invalid, but you know that you have a genuine copy of windows, you must phone Microsoft to resolve the problem.
