Re: Product key does not match...
Thanks god it didn't
First, you should have gotten an email with your corrected KEY. If not,
call the support number on the email you got the original key on.
Second, if you do a keyless install and then try and enter an Upgrade Key it
Get your real key and launch the upgrade from within XP and choose either
Upgrade or Custom. That will work.
