I'm really sick of having to re-install an OS and match the install media to the CD key. Is there anywhere you can enter a key and find out what service pack, if it's retail, OEM, corporate, and OPK the key goes to?
Now there's XP SP2c which only works with an entirely new set of keys to add to the maddness. Most of the PC's I'm having problems with are Dell Dimensions that Joe business owner brings from home and upgrades to XP Pro, and loses the media and CD Key.
I use keyfinders to get the key, that's not the issue. The issue then becomes having to wait for the installer to get half way in to tell me it's the wrong key so I can start all over again with a different install CD.
Anyone have a better system?
