Default Re: Home Edition Troubles

some will already know this but i won't get into too much or try not to

3 main types of windows license
a specific key has to fall within a category of used install to work

This I will be vague on, on purpose:
you do not need a vendor specific disc to recreate the proper NEW WinXP install discs. There are certain files that determine what is what.

I am purposefully being VERY vague and wanted to add more but will not

because atomic tofu really wants to be right when he don't know wtf he is talking about. he loves to debate me, but he never bring actual facts to the table

I got 100 bucks and 30 different copies of xp to upload if anybody wants to prove me wrong.

Mods can you direct me to an old post from the old forums where I listed every version of xp? I can only find stuff on the new forum

Default Re: Home Edition Troubles

this gives you some idea on some of the different versions of xp. I can't post an exact link because it will lead you to some illegal software.

despite what atomic tofuey thinks, you can't enter a gateway or dell serial on an hp xp cd, because it just won't recognize it. I know this as first hand knowledge because I repair computers for a living. I've been doing it for years. I ran into these issues a lot. that's why I went and got every version of xp.

my buddies vern and krazy kenny got into a shipload of trouble when they were using one xp corporate cd to fix everybody computers. vern had an illegal one that he got from somebody. kenny had a legal one but it was suppose to be used only for him and his company on their computers, it wasn't suppose to be used for customers

in the early day I only had a gateway xp cd (with no servicepacks). it would install to any gateway machine and make it legit without adding any serial. when I fix non gateway computer I would enter my gateway serial because it wouldn't take in their xp keys because it only would recognize gateways serials. when I was done I would try to activate it and it would say it can't activate because the hardware isn't the same (I knew that in advance). I would then hit the change product key and enter their serial. the activation would go through without a hitch.

Default Re: Home Edition Troubles

But you can use a regular OEM XP disc for any machine, can't you? I've done it tons of times w/ the OEM disc I have, on several different machines (a few HP's, Compaqs, and Gateways). I haven't had to reenter the serial on all of them, but when I've had to, I've just had to call M$ and tell them that I reformatted the drive/get them to reactivate Windows for me. Unless I'm totally missing what you guys are arguing about. But from what I understand is that you are arguing that you can't use an OEM disc on any machine? Unless you mean an OEM disc that actually came with the manufactured PC..that I can see that it won't work on any other brand, but a regular OEM disc does work, b/c I've done it myself. I could be way off the point of what you guys are arguing (debating may be a better word =P) about, though.

oem recognizes almost every xp serial of that version (Home or Pro). I know that it doesn't recognize ibm and lenovo keys, but it does recognize dell, hp, sony, gateway etc.

xp regular retail will recognize a lot of keys too, but not as many as OEM. which is what I said in the first place.

atomic tofu will always try to turn every subject into an argument. he swears that he knows everything. I was telling mak that when they came with those post sp2 keys that the the disc was still backward compatible with the old serials, but the new serial wasn't not compatible with the old sp1 discs

lol, some people
but like I said, you do not need what you claim people need. Although it would make it easier...you really do not. If you don't know that and don't know or understand what to look for or what is needed, that's not my problem

some people really do need to loosen up...said people can never really seem to and always seem so angry, hehe. And yes, I know...I do what I do but you don't argue with anybody....gotcha, lol

here's my censored list I go by, but yes I have no clue what I ever talk about
