Validating windows xp professional the best websit for dating and relationship absolutely
I have disks for SP1, SP2 and SP3 which I purchased directly from Microsoft.
Instead,, when using the "telephone" method for activation and going through all of Microsoft's "hoops", it finally comes back and says that it is not a valid Microsoft product (implying that it is counterfeit) and that we should return it to the retailer.
This after using it previously for two successful earlier installs.
As for my Dell Dimension 4700, there have been a number of "reinstalls" using the disk from my old "8400" without problem.
BTW, there was another part of your question which I failed to answer.
Unless interrupted by the user, this "validation" process never stops and the available updates are never presented and therefore cannot be selected and downloaded.
