    Hi all, I kindly need help.
    I installed XP Professional on a desktop PC, and I want to change the serial activation.
    THE serial activation want to enter, I got a PC Lapto destroyed.
    I already tried to change it, but I always get the error.

    excuse my bad English, but I am Italian.


    Thanks in advance

    Being Italian is not an excuse, it also does not stop you learning & improving your English...

    Read Sticky: VLK and OEMBIOS changer...

    and learn.

    You need to know what version you installed (retail, VL, OEM)

    If it's VLK aka CORPORATE, you don't need activation for XP ;)

    Thank you all guys.
    My problem is:
    I want to have the license that I disconnected from a laptop destroyed.
    how do I enter the license without receiving error?

    And what version did you have on the laptop?

    Most likely OEM

    Hence learn about Win XP OEM SLP activation (it is ALL explained in the stickies)

    Corporate licenses are already activated in XP for easier deployment.
