    Can someone give me good links and the serials necessary? I think VLK is the best method for activating XP. But I need a serial for XP Professional VLK that still works.

    And how do I check if my serial I use is valid?

    I am a Vista/7 expert but I know nothing about XP. Sorry if my question has been answered already

    I have Inspiron N5110. I have a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM installed from Dell

    If you are simply wanting to learn about XP, why not just use XP mode, as you are using 7 Ultimate?

    slmgr -ilc oemcertificate.xrm-ms
    slmgr -ipk *productkey*

    this does its job to activate a windows 7 ultimate.
    I prefer windows loader by daz as alternative. It never let me down.

    Now I was looking for something similar with XP
