To format and install Windows XP, read our tutorial "Windows XP - Format and reinstall".
To activate "Windows XP", there are several methods. Either by Internet or by telephone.
Note : When you format your computer and you reinstalled Windows the same, it is possible that the Internet activation does not work. You will need to use the method by phone to reactivate your Windows.
Go to "Start Menu -> All Programs" and click "Activate Windows". If you do not see this line then is that your Windows is already activated.
If you did not enter the serial number of Windows XP during the installation, the wizard will ask you now. If this is the case, enter it and click the "Update" button.
Note : If you do not have Internet, you can activate by phone by clicking on the "Phone" button.

Then the system prompts you to enter the numbers shown in step 3 (Group 1 , Group 2, ... and the last group). If everything goes well, you will hear the following message : "Your input has been accepted now please enter confirmation ID starting with the group A". If you misunderstood group or you do not follow the numbers dictate by the responder you can press the "*" key on your phone to make him repeat the current group, otherwise press "# (hash)" key to go to next group. Once the confirmation ID entered, click "Next".
