    I have an OEM version of windows xp pro,,,I have 3 computers in the home...I used the same cd on all three computers and the same key,,,I used an activtion crack to activate two of the computers...the crack did work...allowed me to use the other two computers without getting locked out in 30 days....I went to update to sp1 with one of the cracked computers and rebooted after the install....It locked me out of windows and just kept rebooting my machine.....tell me why...and how I can get around this so I can update to sp1 or whatever......thankx

    Only thing I know that will work is buying a legit copy of XP for the other two systems and reinstalling the OS....and activating it with the new key.

    You could also try a repair install and put in a legit XP key that hasn't been used on another machine....

    If you can boot up in safe mode try going to control panel, system, advanced, system restore and uncheck the "auto reboot" box. Then restart.. that may force a BSOD that will give you an error code that points to the problem.

    Good Luck!
