Thread: XP pro sp3 disc installation problem

  1. #1

    Default XP pro sp3 disc installation problem

    I have tried to install a new xp pro sp3 disc on a new computer but have been getting errors in the installation. I have tried 3 different times but it says that the disc is missing some components and when it is final it does not work properly. I talked to microsoft but they are of no help. I finally talked to a tech person that asked me if I had another disc and I have an older sp2 disc. He said to install that but when I put in the key for my new disc it does not work with my older disc. I finally put in my old key and it worked fine. THe installation went off without a hitch but I won't be able to use my old key when I activate it. When I install the sp3 download will I be able to change my key to the new disc key? Can someone help me here? I have never had this problem before.

    have you got a SATA DVD drive? if so, connect it to the last SATA port on your mobo so it does not interfere with your HDD(s)

    Yes, you can change keys before you activate. Here is how >>>

    And do not worry so much if you do have to call to get it done, they will give you a new key and help you get things activated. I have done this MANY times and it only takes a few minutes, Obviously answer the questions correctly
