    That may be the issue. I have no idea what SP the COA is for. My CD is SP3 and the laptop is fairly old. Maybe it's SP1. The phone-in activation didn't work so the Inst.ID much change depending on the SP installed. Microsoft broke it if that's the case. Since they didn't find a solution, I did, and I was able to find a copy of XP PRO SP3 that works so long as the WGA update doesn't hit him.
