Forgot to ask - did XP activate OK? - If it did, why is this a problem?

Have a general read of the above. The Serial Number checking appears to have flaws, notably with certain OEM serial numbers. You will have to contact MS support (see the documentation with your XP copy) to get this fixed.

PS - any copy of WinXP purchased recently, should have SP1 already included.
