Windows Xp Professional


[link to this post]
 
Just a quick one really

Just had to format my brothers PC as it was riddled with viruses. Too many to bother fixing but he doesnt use PC anyway so found XP Pro CD which is great as my dads business uses this so he wants to use this PC instead.

On the microsoft website trying to find how to purchase a XP Pro Product key but keeps redirecting me to Windows 7. Can anyone help where am I suppose to get it from?

Found a website that states $21.99 but bit wary buying from a website incase its a scam

It's probably a scam unless you can get one legit from ebay.

either old stock in a store (unlikely?) or technet.

anything second hand aka ebay is possible you will have a dodgy key.

is there a specific reason he wants xp pro? win7 runs ok on fairly low spec machines compared to vista.
