    Default Invalid Key after sysprep!

    I Installed windows (dell oem) on my dell system, installed using the key on the laptop with no problems. Installed the software I wanted on there, then ran sysprep (so we could image for multiple machines). Now when I try to put in the Windows XP key it says it's invalid! Even although it's the same key used to install windows XP the first time.

    Unless you have an open licensing areement with Microsoft, you can only use that key on a single machine. Considering you're using an image from a Dell computer, it is doubtful you have the necessary licensing to perform the task you're attempting.
