I lost a hard drive on a computer used by my Son. I had purchased a home edition copy of Windows XP last year and installed it. I had a used computer that I attempted to install the XP copy onto it and ran into a problem with Microsoft which after some tense conversation they informed me that the copy of XP I had used was an OEM version. I apologized and after searching found the copy of XP that I had purchased for use. Now however, I can't install this because Microsoft has somehow locked the computer because of the OEM copy being used. How do I now get rid of the current install of XP so that I can install my legit copy?
