    Hi all,

    I'm running XP in Oracle Virtualbox (to access legacy software) as a VM. Unfortunately, using the original product key, activating Windows through the automated telephone service will not work. I understand that due to moving the VM on to different hardware, Windows doesn't like this and requires a new activation. Does anybody have any tips on how I can either active my current key or retrieve an activatable key from elsewhere?

    XP version is Professional - SP3 OEM

    I've already had to run syssetup,SetupOobe to give myself more time to get the system activated.

    Any help would be warmly welcomed

    Thanks
