    And no im not talking about downloading it. I need to purchase one. XP-Sp2 or SP3 whichever is cheaper. Still $145 in some places :hsd:

    i have one, but the sticker is already on a pc Case. It is a good case. I use the same one on three other machines. I will sell the case with XP Pro. 75 + shipping.

    pm me for the link where i placed an ad. the forums won't let me post a url.

    If you used the same one on three other machines then you are selling a pirated license ...

    I think he means he's used the same case on three other machines.

    Retail copies of XP allow for multiple activations, btw.

    Custom built system actually. I have a lot of XP keys on busted systems that I could use but customer wants a legit copy so I have no choice but to purchase it for them at their request.

    find a local computer shop, most likely they'll burn you a cd and hand you a sticker (OEM version of XP).

    Lol - what? He used the same key on three other machines, but the sticker is on the first case. All of which is illegal. Activations are limited to a single computer (although can activate it more than once if you want to reinstall).

    You can use XP in volume if you have a license for this but if you use the same key on two different systems (live systems) one will become invalid eventually or won't activate.
