I wanted to reinstall XP Pro
I dropped the XP disc, stood on it, it bent, unusable.
I borrowed an XP disc, then I looked for the sticker,
It was not there, I asked members for help,
Jelly Bean worked fine, I got the number,
Installed XP Pro with the borrowed disc,
When it asked for the Product Number
I typed it in, it would not accept it.
To continue I typed in the borrowed Disc Number,
That worked.
After XP had installed,I am not allowed to active with the borrowed Key,
I brought up the activation screen, and hit change Product key.
I typed in the number I got from Jelly Bean, clicked “Activate on Line”
It activated
