    Hi,

    My new emachines desktop..........or nettop has a windows xp home edition sticker on it. I don't plan on using xp ever again so I was wondering if there's an xp user with an eMachines pc that would want this code? I have removed the sticker with the product keycode from the back of my pc and I would mail it to anyone that wants it. My pc came with xp home sp3 so It should activate with the latest xp home version. Anyone?

    Why don't you not make your own OEM cd all the info is available on the forum. And there are pre made OEM cd links available to download Various, XP PRO OEM SLP CD's

    I didn't receive one. If emachines sent one out the original owner kept it. I got a vista home premium disc with mine.

    Guys, you are here to learn something (but I see that so far you did not manage much)

    ye, slp licensing works really nice for activating windows. but most people do not know this licensing scheme exists and think the only way to activate windows is with a coa sticker key.

    i've purchased a number of pre-owned computers on ebay over the years. a lot of the ones that were owned by private individuals have the coa sticker removed or defaced in some way so that you cannot read the numbers on it. presumably, this was done so that the license key could be used to install the windows operating system on another computer.

    i have also purchased a number of refurbished computers where the seller has reinstalled the operating system and activated the system with a coa key. i have not gotten any machines in yet that were slp activated unless they still had the original manufacturer supplied image on the harddrive though.
