Yes, Office has the CD key.
Thanks a lot, it booted from CD fine with the Home Edition CD.
Why doesn't Office boot? what makes it different?
i think because its not bootable, its not made for that. that would be my guess.
now you need an OS, feel like trying Vista out?
Ya, i was thinking about waiting for SP2, I am not sure how good Vista is with games tho.
i honestly dont know because i'm still on XP. But SP2 should be out soon and plenty of folks here are happy with Vista. I'm sure they will be able to help you out if u have trouble. I'm just saying that it doesnt make sense to buy XP at this point, if i was buying now id get Vista.
I am hearing that Office XP is not an OS, its actually just a bunch of desktop apps(word, power point) bundled together.
if you lost your XP key it can be found in the i 386 folder if you browse the CD on another rig.
Ya, i did that, and it says its invalid when i type it in.
i dont get it, how can you get your key in 386 folder if you were trying to reinstall, everything should be wiped by a preinstall format????
You put the CD in another system that has an OS installed on it.
And go to the folder to see your key, but its doesn't work for me tho.
i see what u saying, i didnt account for another PC, lol
damn, though, it should've worked, as long as both machines had XP Home, of course.
make sure its absolutely written right i have a bad habit on ym vista key to type P before t and i type Z as 2 ans "0" as "o" best bet is to copy and print it in notepad
