    Ok, this is kind of a wierd one. A friend of mine lost his dell install discs so I lent him mine. So we went and installed Windows XP home, but now we need to match his registration number for his machine with that copy of windows XP, rather than the one that is on my CD. Anyone know how to do this?

    I tried the MS page that outlines how to change my registration, unfortunately it did not work. The Activation files were missing on the dell installation. I have been searching, but still have not found a place to change the registration info. The activation key was already a part of the installation CD that I used so I was never prompted for this info.
