The rule is one copy of windows xp to one computer. If you want to use xp on another computer you'll need to buy another copy with another serial number.

1. There isn't any such operating system as 98me. You are maybe getting mixed up with Millenium edition upgrading to XP?
2. The reason the 2nd computer won't activate is because it's only 1 license and you have used the valid legal license up on the first computer. 1 License per upgrade. Looks like you will need to purchase an additional license or new copy.

I assumed he meant windows 98SE and it was a mistype, regardless of that the only thing you can do is buy another copy of XP.

Millenium is Known as windows 98me short for millenium ,

Leave it three months it will then work, You may have to phone up. But as you have the computer now, you would be better to go back to 98se for the three months

No such thing as Win98me it must be some sort of slang. Heres the list of what there is so far click here

Data protection MS have to remove info they collect. Unless you want to buy another copy of XP
