Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

This Microsoft document tells how to change product key
for XP/SP1 .....

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;328874

Is there a corresponding document for XP/SP2? Thank you.

    Same thing - but only good for changing from one volume license key to
    another..
    You have to perform a repair install to go from a retail/oem/volume license
    key to a retail/oem key.

    Okay, fine. Is there a new "document' to cover this?
    How about instructions for 'repair install' with
    specific reference to changing retail/oem key?

    Bill

    Go here..

    http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm ..

    There is no need for a specific reference to changing retail/oem key, as it
    is part of the procedure anyway.. be prepared to activate over the phone..
    here in Canada, it is an automated process through the night, and easy to
    do..

    No there is isn't a current Microsoft site hosting a document that is
    specific to SP2. Use the current instruction set for Windows XP.
