Hi, When I try to download sp1a updates for XP Pro I get an error message telling me my key code is no good. That this disk might be a bootleg disk or have other problems.
Just after I got this software I broke the disk case and replaced it with a new one. On the new case I put a label sticker and wrote the 25 diget key code on it and now I guess I wrote down the wrong letters/numbers and when I try to reinstall the XP Pro in my PC, after my dumbbutt move that formated my hd, I can't download the sp1a updates......
Can this disk be saved or do I need to buy another new one??
edited; this is the message I get from Microsoft.
