Angry XP repair/install prob

Ok you gurus; This has been driving me crazy. XP basically died, (partition was not dismounted properly),bootdisks would not load, will boot partway into safe mode and just sit there with safemode in all four corners. Used recovery console and tried to run chkdsk/f, again it just sat there. fianlly decided to try repair/install. all ok to going thru set-up (39 min), then it asked for the Product Code. I entered the one on the Computer case and it decided it was invalid. The XP is a retail version installed by the dealer. I am unable to access XP to determine product ID. It may have OEM somewhere in it. Anyway all is goin well except for this little problem. I am waiting for a response from the dealer, but thought i would give this forum a chance.
Thanks in advance.
