  • How can i change to this key type

    I currently have a VLK version of windows xp pro installed and would like to know how to make this version accept a retail key or oem key without installing over top itself or without reinstalling windows completly.

    you can't. if you have a retail key you need to install the retail cd of xp. you can do a repair install which would install overtop but thats about it.

        normally your pretty safe. you data will still be their. Most applications will still work but you may have to reinstall 1 or 2. I would do a good backup before though just incase. do you have anything(software, settings) inparticular that your worried about messing up.
