Fren Banklin Posted March 1, 2009 Share Posted March 1, 2009 Hello All ! I have a Toshiba TE2000 that has a new HD and a legal Product Key. I've learned about the various "Known Windows XP CD Labels" from TakTech.com, but still am unable to determine which particular disk I need to reinstall XP. Obviously I need XP Pro. I've tried installing two different WXPVOL_EN (corporate volume) disks and the installs refuses the Product Key, so I assume this is the wrong one. And I can't seem to find the "SP0" OEM disk (WXPOEM_EN) anywhere. (And I've been looking for days....) Rather than continue with trial and error, I'm looking for a way to use the information on the Certificate of Authenticity and determine which CD Label will go with it. I've read lots of sites, but they all start from pulling the information (Product Key, Product ID, PID) from a working computer. Yet it seems MOST people would be where I'm at, with non-working computer, a legal Product Key and no installation disk. So where is this information ? And there is a lot of information in the LunarSoft Wiki about "Product ID" codes, but no explanation about where you find them. Are they in the registry ? In a file on the Hard Drive ? In the Installation Disk ? In the C of A ? And what good does it do someone in my situation to know this information ? How do I find my Product ID, and once I know it, what do I do with it ? Also, as an aside, what is the difference between a "Product ID" and a "PID". I thought PID was an acronym for Product Identification Code, which sounds a lot like "PID". Just tonight I learned they were different, and the key is most-properly called the "Product Key". Any help appreciated, and thanks in advance, - Fren Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
