I have been using my genuine (original) XP Pro (oem) CD to do repair & setup on multiple older PCs just to get them in shape and up to date. It was working fine & able to activate on the first few machines, but finally then, I got this message, after it finished running a setup, booting into the Welcome screen,

"Windows Product Activation: (with a circled Red X) This copy must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on. Do you want to Activate Windows now? Yes or No"

I keep clicking "yes" but the same message box keeps reappearing continuously. It would not go any further. What is wrong? Is because I use the same product key to run several repair setups on multiple machines in a short period or did I use it to register & activate from different IP address under different names? Anyone has the similar problem to help?

OEM means one disk for one PC. What your are doing appears to illegal and per rules we can't help.
