So, I still have a valid XP CD and serial from a broken old laptop. It's a slipstream disc back when HP still gave discs. I'm throwing it into a VM. I gave it a 10gb expanding drive space and 4gb of ram to play with.

First, it has taken 25 minutes just to get to get to a desktop. Then I get hit with pop ups for activation (fair enough), anti-virus, and tour XP.

Now I'm running updates. First thing it did was install the validation tool. Restart required!

Now, I need to install SP3 which is fair enough.

Stay tuned!

It's the only version of Windows I have that doesn't have a key being used already.
