Default lost XP COA...how do I re-install?


Greetings --

The Windows 25-character Product Key (required to perform the
installation) is stored on the CD packaging on a bright orange sticker
that says "Do not lose this number." If it was an OEM (factory
installed) license, it's stored on a label that the PC manufacturer
affixed to the exterior of the PC case, or on the bottom of a laptop.

If it was an OEM license, Microsoft can provide no support and you
should contact whomever sold you the OS; although very few
manufacturers/vendors keep records of the Product Keys they've sold,
it's worth a try before you have to buy a new license.
