it was origionally a dell oem i could not find that disk so i used my retail copy xp which is already installed on an older gateway upgrade from win 98.I have already tried a new hard drive 160 gig and formatted it and reinstalled several times it runs in safe mode, but it wont let me run in normal mode.I cannot install my broadcom driver in safe mode so i cant get on line with it. microsoft said i had to remove xp from the old gateway then i could reinstall it on the dell and reactivate it.Win xp uninstall did not appear in system tools or add remove programs and i could not run osuninst.exe because it said registration info was missing on both comps thanks!

I would just format the drive on the old machine and call to activate your windows on the new machine. Explain to them that you formatted the old drive so windows is no longer on it and then they should help you get it activated
