  • Need to unlock XP to install Windows 7

    I bought a server used to expand my business and when I bought it the seller told me that inorder to use it I have to buy a full windows program. He installed windows xp to check the computer. So not only is it locked out regular, it is also locked out in safe mode. Is there a way I can install windows 7 with out have the password for windows xp?

    Put the disk in the DVD drive and boot from it then wipe the drive before installing.

      Why are you using Windows 7 as a server -- it will only support a limited number of users amd has limited server features apart from file / print sharing

      Look at SBS which gives you so much more functionality:
      Active Directory
      Security
      Exchange....

      Your vendor clearly doesnt know what he is on about!
