    p2v windows xp activation

    Hi

    When i convert windows xp physical to virtual using vmware I seem to get away with not having to reactivate the software, but recently converted a machine to use with hyper-v and now am forced to activate, which i cannot seem to do.

    I have tried telephone activation, internet activation, oem key off bottom of machine, a win 7 open key.

    What would i need ?

    Do Win7 keys not supersede Xp keys?

    Would i need to reinstall windows on this sort of issue? or would a key from an open license (correct key) work?

    Thanks

    An XP key will only activate an XP installation. Is it a home license on the sticker and you're trying to activate a Pro version ?
