I could swear, that the XP Pro SP2 disk that I have is NOT an OEM copy; to
be sure, I'm not positive, but when it prompts the user to enter the
25-character key, that means that it's off the shelf, right?
And, I'll pay closer attention next time, but I could have sworn that my
Home Edition SP1 vs. SP2 disks only worked with tags that were identified as
SP1 and SP2, respectively.
