    Change Win XP Product Key

    You know when people want you to do something there and then but if you cant they get someone else to do it? That's what this is.

    Some reformatted a computer (standalone) from Windows XP Home to Windows XP Pro, now they entered the XP Home Serial Code and it worked for a few months since Microsoft released the Genuine Updates, now how can I / what do I do to change the Product Key to a VLK code?

    Cheers

    I didn't think that was possible. XP Home and XP Pro use different sets of keys as do VLK. This guide should talk you through the steps.

    Repair install with VLK media maybe?

    I assume this IS a school owned computer?

    Microsoft Product Key Changer - 'corp' to OEM/Retail

    Should be worth a try - it's fixed up every other combination of valid key/wrong OS and vice versa that I've thrown at it
