Default XP licence

Hello,

I have created an image of one computer and I'm puting that on all other computer, I have a valid XP key for each system but when I burn te image to the new PC it uses the original key from the first PC. This is illegal correct, what can I do to change the key form the old to the new without a reinstall.

Any ideas welcome

Chris

Simplest way would be to use sysprep. Read about it here
