My husband gave me his old dell inspiron e1705 that came with xp media center on it. Dell has its own factory settings ghost install on it so I started from scratch. I was attacked by a worm recently and some system files were corrupted. I have no disk for the computer, dell does not give them or my husband lost it. I have our xp pro disk from work that I was only hoping to run a repair install and restore damaged system files but of course it wants to upgrade. It tells me invalid key and it's already partially installed pro on there and I cannot get out of it.
I don't know, please help. I've been looking through keys and key gens and all these registry and deactivation tools which are no help to my currently unavailable system
