I have installed Windows XP in my PC. The OS that I installed did not ask for a product key. Now if I want to get it through the Genuine Certification,

1. Will it pass?
2. What will happen if it doesnt pass?
3. Should I attempt to go through the procedure or no?

That depends on way too much stuff, requiring info we don't have.

Where exactly did this copy of XP come from?
What edition is it?
What brand computer do you have, did it come with XP pre-activated?
Does it have a sticker with a secondary key on it?
Is the copy of XP cracked? If so, how?

I got it from my dad's office.
XP SP 2
The PC's quite old. Dell Optilex GX 270
It is an original CD. It is not cracked.

Just try passing WGA and everyone can go from there depending on the message you get. If it passes, then there's nothing to worry about. And if not... they aren't going to come break down your door, lol.

If it came from a office, it may be one of those that have been tweaked specifically for Ghost installations. IIRC, they don't require a product key because they already have a licence for installation on multiple computers. On the other hand, that may be IP locked (since the license is only for use on one site/suite).

I can't be sure because I've only helped do Ghost installations, and not set it up myself.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Was it ever operational?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so
  • Veho @ Veho:
    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Well knowing where you are going is usually a good thing
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looking before jumping is also a good thing.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    If you follow the money the truth is usually there
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.

    Well Biden said he was going after the big oil companies 🥰
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looks like he failed.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    His record seems to imply otherwise, but politicians say the opposite of what they really mean
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like most politicians, he
    has so many corporate hands up his ass it's a wonder he could move at all.

    I'm sorry, that's not bribery, that's "lobbying".

    Or when a foreign country does it, it's "investing" in your "equity firm".

    I remember a comedian saying that politicians should have to wear jackets like NASCAR with all the sponsors on them

    @Psionic Roshambo, Because politicians are racists?
