Possible to change OEM XP-Pro installs to Volume License Keys without system re-installation?
Posted on 2006-10-25
I recently setup some of the computers in my business network with XP-Pro. Anticipating the arrival of my VLK, I went ahead and used an OEM media and key (without activating) to install the OS, and get the systems setup. However, now I cannot change the key to a VLK, because its saying the key is invalid. Is there a work-around for the OEM to VLK conversion, or do I need to just bite the bullet and re-install the OS using the VLK media that I received?
Thanks for your input...
