I'm trying to install Win XP Home edition on a PC which has Win 98 running. I have a "Reinstallation CD" from the OEM and a separately bought certificate of authenticity. The product ID on the CoA is not accepted by Setup - the following message is displayed:
"The Product ID which you entered is invalid. Please try again."
The OEM name on the CoA does not have a "D" at the end.
Are there different CoAs for recovery disks than for first time installation CDs?
How can I get this OS installed ?
