I am trying to fix a friends laptop and like alot of fools I know he does not have the original disks that came with it. It was running Windows XP Home.
The laptop in question is a Packard Bell. I thought I would be able to use an XP Home disk I have here, install it and use te product key on the bottom of the laptop. Turns out, I can't! XP installs fine but when I enter the product key from the laptop it doesn't work. Probably because the key on the laptop is for a Packard Bell OEM disc but I have no idea where to get one.
What are my options?
Thanks in advance.
