I reformatted my xps which came with wiindows media edition and installed a copy of xp pro which i had lieing around from an old dell laptop. Anyways, I went through the whole installation process and was never asked for a cd key. Then I went to the microsoft website and updated to service pack 2. At one point it said something like "verifying registration key" and the key which i never entered was validated and sp 2 was installed successfully. Whats up with that?
