ok look- the cd has no way of knowing how many times you installed xp on different machines. it is somewhat unclear now of just what it is you want to do here.. first you said u wanted to deactivate winxp so u could install to a different machine, correct? follow the instructions i wrote f/you above to de-avtivate. then install xp to your new machine and use the key to activate. your not suppose to install your copy of xp to multiple boxes, however there are plenty of patches aval. that will take care of this 'activation' process for you.
This is Linux country. If you listen carefully, you can hear Windows reboot...
