  1. I have a CD with XP Pro on it so I took CLEAR pictures of the Product Key because it was asking for it yet when I typed it in, it told me it was incorrect, why? It still installed thou, kinda crazy.

    Typically, 0 and O. Often, 1 and l. Sometimes, 2 and Z.
    If still an issue then call Microsoft for authentication.

    I used to occassionaly run into that when the disc was OEM & the key retail, or vice-versa.

    I used to really like emachine-- they had the least bloatware installed, iirc.

    Good luck, mate!
