    why use home?

    find a windows xp pro corp torrent and download it.

    You don't even need a cd-key for xp pro corp.

    Yes you do. XP corp needs a key. Just doesn't require activation.

    i dont think you could download the home version. Noone bothers sharing that becuase you could just as easily get the pro and its better.

    Sorry, no activation is what I meant because you can just grab a key off google.

    there isnt really much difference between the two, and i wanted home so i have a legit key for windows update etc and other ms downloads that you have to validate your windows. since i ahve the legit key, just no windows cd.

    i managed to find a torrent with about 8 versions as iso's so im just downloading the xp home sp2 oem iso within it.

    If you do that windows update and service packs aren't going to work...
    Find a good SP2 key.

    Updates and all SPs work fine with the cracked win xp pro corp version. The PRO CORP version has the option of disabling Windows Activation in IE, so you can get all those updates even with a cracked key.

    You don't need a good valid key for Win xp PRO corp...damn legit software, who needs them

    You keep providing inacurate information.

    It's in IE>Tools>Manage Add-ons...>disable Windows Genuine Advantage.
