Default Windows XP Pro


I bought a second hand computer a couple of years ago and with it I got a CD with Windows XP Pro but I don't have the serial numbers to use it to re-format my computer. Can anyone suggest how I could sort this out?

Cheers out there

Hello, you could try the product key finder using the program from syschats' download section but you won't be able to get the key from the CD.
