    One of my friend in indonesia is sending me a copy of win xp (yes, over 90% of software in asian countries are pirated [copied] believe it or not) and i was wondering if I can still install it on my pc. I heard from a friend that I can't cuz when I install it, i have to call microsoft headquarters to verify a 50 digit CD key and so once I do, they will know it's pirated and they won't activate it for me. Does anyone know anything about this? <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif">

    This is true there are walk arounds. But ther other is true to. If you can't get it to work after 30 days it will deactivate itself, and no nlonger work. If you try and use a CD key that is already in use it wll not work. BUt if you can get it to work it is pretty awesome, and fast.

    It should only be a 25 digit cdkey for starters, and if it's pirated from indonesia, you should be safe. It should already be cracked. But just so you know, there aren't too many people here willing to help you crack it, if it already isn't. But you can use DC or Kazaa or Google to look for the crack.

    Once again, please dont ask about things like this here. <br>
    And never post a key ! It will be deleted. Period.
