    Has Microsoft removed the activation thing yet or nah? Because once Microsoft switches off the activation server, any future copies of windows xp you decide to install will no longer validate because the servers are down and will have to resort to um, other fixes assuming telephone activation is also disabled.... dunno if it was some random in the crowd or I read somewhere one of the microsoft rep said it, but mentions they would have to turn it provide a patch to remove this feature for those who still wanna run XP....for whatever reasons....

    Well, OEMBIOS (SLP 1.0) activation is fully offline and will work forever without any MS server involved. Same for OEM:SLP 2.x.

    As for the activation servers, they still work, but you need to update your certificate store with the latest MS certs.

    What if you're using a retail/non-oem (such as volume, dreamspark, etc.) key?

    That's the roots certificates right? Where you have, since windows xp's method is out of date, get a windows 7 machine to download the certs and install the certs after it's downloaded from there?

    You know the answer. End of the line if they ever kill the activation servers. OEM:SLP and XP VLK / Vista KMS methods will keep working (everything not requiring their servers).


    Yes. When you have restored the certification chain for the Windows Update and Activation servers, both start working correctly again. However, there's no guarantee for the future.
