OK, this might be rather off topic, in which case my apologies.
I'm trying to set up virtual box on an old machine that has been
redisked (the old disc failed). The box original had XP installed on it
(and still has the MS sticker on it). The new disc was set up with
Ubuntu 11.10, and that work fine. I've now got virtual box installed on
it, and that seems to have installed OK. I'm trying to set up an XP VM
on it, using the CD that was supplied with the machine when new, and all
is well until I get to the 5x5 code (that is on the sticker). I've put
this in, and it always gets rejected as being wrong (I've done the
obvious stuff like swapping 0 and O). Any suggestions for a (legal) way
around this ?.
The supplier (Evesham) is no longer in business, so I can't talk to them
(not sure if they would be interested 9.5 years on even if they were
still going), and looking at their website M$ appear to want £46.00 just
to reply to me.
