Hey guys. I was wondering if you know a way to change the serial key for Windows XP. My company has it's own key that they want us to use so I can't use the one this Dell Notebook is using. The problem is, this laptop had the key already inputted for me, so I couldn't change it.
We have this .exe file that supposedly changes it, but it wont let me do it. Does anyone know where in the registry it's located? I'd love to get this changed, so I can make a Ghost image of this new laptop. If you have any questions let me know.
The key must match the type of media used. It may be possible to reimage the laptop using the company's Volume media kits. It's also not possible to reliably make an image (possible, but not recommended, due to the way it activates) from an OEM install.
