    do a universal restore from other's Win XP system.
    In this way, you can copy others system and restore it on your PC.
    You can Google universal restore, and there are some tutorials.
    I have done this for several times with easeus todo backup.

    Correct solution is to use retail XP service pack 3 install media, which lets you leave the key blank and install trial mode.
