  1. There are several different versions of Windows XP install disks, and you must have the EXACT correct disk for the license key to work.

    Some of the version (off the top of my head):

    XP Home OEM
    XP Home Retail
    XP Pro OEM
    XP Pro Retail
    XP Pro Volume License
    XP Media Center
    Plus various upgrade and market specific versions. . .
  2. Try to download and install update windows after installation.
