    Stop pretending being stupid, read the stickies, learn something & only then ask the question

    @sebus, that was a bit harsh. It's just Window$ activation for goodness sake. There can be a number of plausible reasons why a person wouldn't be able to figure it out by themselves just by reading the stickies.

    @christian666
    I don't know all the activation tricks for XP, but I may be able to help you to do an OEM activation if you want.

    If your PC originally came with a pre-installed Windows OS, your BIOS may already contain the SLP string that you need for activation. Run this oembios tool and post the output here.

    Also, to save us time, find out what type of BIOS you have (AMI, Award, Phoenix etc...), or at least what kind of PC you have. Especially if you have a non OEM PC (like if you built it yourself).

    I'm having the exact same problem here's the ouput from that tool you suggested.


    Windows XP OEMBIOS Test v1.1/269/106 (C) 2007-2010 severach @ msfn forums
    F:IBM Corporation OEMBIOS.CAT CRC=D7A77612
    These Royalty OEM install CD's should preactivate (SLP) on your system.
    Lines starting with E: are not reliably detected when running under Windows
    Press Enter!

    oembios changer does the key as well, so no need for step 7

  7. Ah, my BIOS in VMWARE didn't have a slp string :(

    You may want to check the BIOS mods thread and search for your PC bios there. If it has an AMI bios or Award bios you could quite easily insert it there yourself.

    So check the correct sticky (just the one) in Virtualization
