Default Re: windows xp

you could call microsoft and tell them you're trying to reinstall it on the same machine again and it won't let you. See if they give you a new serial key or something.

it might. I actually had that happen when I had to reinstall XP the last time and they asked "are you installing it on the same machine" I simply replied yes because I actually was but I could have just as easily said no and they would have believed it. You could give it a try.
