Not bad for the price, but the enjoyment of getting to go overboard made 2k-tan worth the nearly $2,000 I invested in her creation

Anyway, my next project in line is fixing up a PC I bought for $15 at a garage sale a few weeks back; so my dad will have something more powerful. However, the most expensive thing holding it back is the fact I don't have a CD and matching product key set for Windows XP; I have a disc for Pro, but a key for Home Edition. Anybody know of some ways around this?

Torrent an ISO?  It's perfectly legal.

That would probably be my best bet, since there likely isn't any software to bypass the need for a product key and I really don't want to spend $100+ on a new copy of Windows XP (It's not worth pouring that much money into, to be honest)

i got a key if you need one; windows xp pro.

Penti-chan

Ok, You can PM it to me and I'll give it a shot later on

XP needs a key? Why have I never needed a key for my XP installs...?

NLite must've taken it out....

Some come with the keys embedded or that disabled. If not, disabling it is not very hard, nor is getting a key generator. There is in fact software and other ways to bypass the need for a key.

Penti-chan

I'll have to do some research into that...unless somebody knows of some software off the top of their head that will do that; since the sites you search for this sort of thing at are very shady.

there is a way to program a activated key with xp, it is a msconfig exploit

yeah, this pc was made for vista. there's only one glitch, though: the built-in mic doesn't work. :\

Here's the WEI scores on Asagi, for anybody curious


@Alex: msconfig exploit? Do tell

I think my "WEI" for this computer is 6.2 or so, due to the integrated Nvidia graphics. The rest was 7.something if I remember right.
