I have a valid version of XP Pro installed on my machine. Today I am reinstalling windows to start fresh and it will not accept my product key. The CD i am installing it with is a burned version of XP but the key is valid and on a sticker on the side of my machine. How can i get it to accept the key? I have no job and forking out 100$ for a new OS key is not an option for me. :'(
