Need help quick! Tags: Computers CD-Rom Windows XP Last response: May 7, 2010 4:53 AM in Windows XP Share wfode09 May 7, 2010 3:53:51 AM Ok, my windows XP that i put on my computer was never "authentic" so it gave me a 30 run of it and now it's up and says that i have to type in an authentic cd key, but it doesn't work. How do i Uninstall windows xp if i can't actually run windows? or how do i reset my stuff so i can install the new OS I got?

To install windows, set the CD/DVD drive as the 1st boot device in the BIOS. Then restart, and press a key when you see the prompt. This will start the format/install process.
