Change Windows XP PID

 
 

In XP if you have an OEM Keycode, you can not install XP from a non-OEM disk.

To fix this:

  1. Save the disk to a folder on your computer.
  2. Look for the SETUPP.INI file in the i386 directory.
  3. Edit the line with "Pid" to the appropriate PID (See Below).
  4. Save the edited folder back to a new disk. Making sure the volume label is rigth.

In the end the Pid line should look like:

Pid=55274OEM

For "Windows XP Pro OEM SP2"
