    Ive installed xp pro sp3 on a friends pc and have already installed all the necessary drivers. The problem Ive got is that I cannot activate it as its a genuine. I cant use vladxed666's activator as I have installed drivers etc. Does anyone know of a reliable alterntive activation method? Thanks in advance guys :worthy:

    I've you had read the few comments posted in vladxed666's activator topic, you would have known this doesn't work very well, or not at all if you like to receive and install updates.
    OEM:SLP pre-activation it the safest way to activate, but requires you to read up a bit (start with the stickies in this forum section)

    I will be more than willing to help you further if needed, but I need you to put in a little effort trying to read up and understand the basis principle of OEM:SLP pre-activation first.
