    Hi all,

    I'm new to these forums so not so sure on what sort of assistance I am going to get here. I've read all forums and have not found anyone to seem to have the same issue as me.

    I had a laptop that I bought off a friend. It had windows 98 on it.
    I uploaded windows vista to it and then stupidly lost the disc.
    Everything was fine for a few months and I realised I had just about had enough with windows vista so I borrowed a Windows Xp home edition from a friend. I uploaded it all the way till the point of inputting the product key.
    At this point he told me he hasn't got the product key :|.
    So I had Installed windows xp home without a product key, and Cannot workout how to Basically, get rid of it.
    I tried loading a Windows xp professional disc ( my own), ( and yes i had the product key for once:) )
    But the Windows xp Home edition product key input would not dissapear.
    That is where I am up to so far.
    Really looking for some helpful assistance.
    Thank you all very much in advance.

    I would suggest reformatting the hard-drive again, and installing XP Pro onto it again. If it says an XP Home key is needed, either you are having major issues, or you aren't using an XP Pro disk.

    dont know if it would help but you could try booting in safe mode.

    I definitely recommend reformatting the hard drive, at the expense of any information in there.
