I don't have an XP install CD, so correct me if I'm wrong, but the only way I can install Windows XP at this time is through WINNT32?
Also, when I stated that I found the product key online, I meant to say that I found the steps to find the product key if you don't have the Windows XP install CD with the product key on it.
Here is the path:
My computer > HP_PAVILION ©: > WINDOWS > I386 > UNATTEND > Scroll to the bottom and you get "ProductKey"
As for downloading SIW to find the product key.....I can't get online. I really can't do anything at this point. I've been trying to re-install Windows XP in "Safe Mode" and I keep getting blocked from the Administrator. Now I'm trying to install Windows XP in regular mode through WINNT32 and it just says "Preparing to install...." with the hour glass just sitting there.
If I can't figure it out within in the next day or say I might just have to take it to Best Buy and have the Geek Squad work on it?
All this because I opened an email from a friend with a VirusRespone Lab 2009 virus, hence, my display name!
