So recently I was forced to uninstall Windows Vista, and I can no longer put it back in. I found my Windows XP Disk and installed it on my computer without any problems, I am now at the part where it asks me for my XP Passcode ID. I put in my 25 Character Code and it tells me that it is invalid. I bite the bullet and call Microsoft and buy a new key for ten dollars. That too does not work, and I got my refund. A bunch of solutions require me to go to Run msconfig but I can't access safe mode because I don't have any kind of software on my computer. What can I do? Does anyone know why this is not working?

You try with another cd? maybe the problems isn't the key...is the cd...

I think your right, I have it working now, but I don't get why that was the problem. The last CD brought me to the Passcode, why didn't it just let me enter it on that CD?

The product code needs to match the build of XP.
