Keep XP Registered

  1. Copy the file c:\windows\system32\wpa.dbl to a floppy.
  2. Reinstall Windows XP.
  3. Boot to a DOS disk if you are using FAT, or to the Recovery Console if using NTFS.
  4. Copy the file from the first step above back to c:\windows\system32.
  5. That's it - because all of your hardware is the same as before, your copy of WinXP is still valid according to the previous activation.
