I was reformatting a hard drive and mistakenly used an XP set-up disk that I
don't have the key for. I went through the formatting process and now I get
to installation and can't do anything. How can I at least get to a point
where I can use the correct disk to Install XP? Please help. This is a very
time sensitive matter.
Thank you

Hi

Have you tried using the XP CD that you do have the PK for to run the setup
program? You'll have to delete the partition and start from scratch again.
