    My friend has the Devils XP Pro version installed. He bought an Upgrade copy of Pro and tried to chnage the activation and eneter his legal key number. It tells him that XP is already activated but it still keeps the Devils ID number so that SP1 can not be applied.
    Any ideas how to solve this. (No option is given to reactivate thru the OOBE).

    Well guys, we better start finding a common link just so we try to understand why some can do the job nicely and others don't.

    Here's my experience:
    1. I never used anti-spy;

    2. I followed these instructions step by step and it worked as described;

    http://www.govital.net/~soz/changekey.htm

    I did make sure that I used one key generated by xp.suite.keygen.zip
    and I also made sure it'd be appropriate for the CD I have; I discovered that not all keys are accepted and I tried them until I found one that was accepted by the CD. In order to do this just pretend you're installing XP until you're asked for a key and see if it's accepted. One may have to try several until a suitable one is found; I had to try more than 20 to find a good one;

    3. Afterwards I just applied SP1 and I had no problems at all. :thumb:

    I also went here

    http://www.trwhotfilez.kit.net/xpsp1/xpsp1.html#best

    and downloaded

    ViewKeyXP.exe

    to make sure I had the new key activated before running SP1.
