I am trying to install the copy of Win 98SE which came with an old computer I have been given. It is a genuine copy of Win 98SE but the Product key I have is xxxxx-OEM-xxxxxxx-xxxxx (5, 3, 7, 5 characters) but part way through the install a window has come up asking for a key xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (5 groups of 5 characters).
The install process refuses to accept the OEM key. How can I overcome this problem?
I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers
