    I have a IBM (Lenovo, I think) laptop with XP PRO SP2 OEM sticker on the bottom, and I'm currently using a pirated XP SP2 and I'm in need of a reformat.

    Are there any ways I can get my hands on an OEM CD that will allow me to use the OEM key on my laptop?

    (I've read the stickies, but I'm not too sure what to make of them and if they apply to me)

    The key on the laptop is garbage.

    Find some OEMBIOS files to match the IBM, Lenovo strings in your bios, get a sp3 ISO somewhere, add them and use one of the SLP serials in the stickies.

    You can install the disk you have now and convert after also..
