I need some help here.
I'm working on an HP desktop for a friend.
I had to replace the hard drive. I cannot get it to take the Windows key during the install.
I tried Home, Pro and MCE 2002.
According to the sticker the original OS was MCE 2005. I'm guessing the edition has allot to do with acceptance of the key?
I cannot use the restore disks as they do not exist.
There is no factory partition to utilize either because it is a new drive (the other one is toast)
