Thread: Hypothetical question

    G'day all
    If one had the XP Operating system installed with the infamous FCK serial number and wanted to format would the following be the correct procedure.
    Dis-connect [Optus - cable] modem.
    Format as usual [not recieving updates during installation]
    Change the CD key using a well publised method.
    Connect Modem.
    Visit Windows update and install all relevent updates, SP1 included?
    Hypothetically, How would I fare.
    Cheers

    1. Get the key generator ("XP Key Recoverer and Discoverer 5.12")
    2. Generate a new key
    3. Reformat and reinstall Windows using the new key
    4. Download and install SP-1
    5. Rock On
