How to Crack Windows XP Activation Key in Safe Mode
If you have Windows XP without the genuine serial key, you may encounter a problem when trying to activate Windows. However, there is a way to bypass this restriction by using Safe Mode, a diagnostic mode that allows you to access Windows with minimal drivers and services. In this article, we will show you how to crack Windows XP activation key in Safe Mode with a few simple steps.
Step 1: Enter Safe Mode
To enter Safe Mode, you need to restart your computer and press the F8 key before the Windows XP splash screen appears. This will open the Windows Advanced Options Menu, where you can choose from three variations of Safe Mode: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. For this method, you can choose any of them, but we recommend Safe Mode with Networking in case you need to access the internet or your local network while troubleshooting. Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice and press Enter.
Next, you need to select the operating system to start. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation, so the choice is usually clear. Use the arrow keys to highlight the correct operating system and press Enter. Wait for the minimum system files necessary to run Windows XP to load. You may see a list of files being loaded on the screen.
Finally, you need to log in with an administrator account. This is important because only an administrator can modify the registry and change the product key. If you don't have an administrator account, you may need to create one or reset the password of an existing one. In the \"Windows is running in safe mode\" dialog box, select Yes.
Step 2: Modify the Registry
Once you are logged in as an administrator, you need to open the registry editor. To do this, click Start, then choose Run. Type \"regedit\" (without the quotation marks) and click OK. This will open the registry editor window, where you can navigate through various keys and values.
In the registry editor window, double click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or click on the plus sign next to it. Then click on Software, Microsoft, Windows NT, CurrentVersion, and WPAEvents. Right click on OOBETimer and select Modify. In the Edit Binary Value window, remove all the values in the value data box. Click OK and close the registry editor.
Step 3: Change the Product Key
Now that you have modified the registry, you need to change the product key. To do this, go back to Run and type the following command without quotation marks: \"%systemroot%\\system32\\oobe\\msoobe.exe /a\". This will open the Activate Windows wizard, where you can choose how to activate Windows.
In the Activate Windows wizard, choose the second option: \"Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to activate Windows.\" Click on Next. Then click on Change Product Key. Enter your genuine key in the New Key box and click on Update. If you don't have a genuine key, you can search online for some valid keys or use a key generator program.
Step 4: Verify Your Activation
To verify that your Windows XP is genuine and activated, you can use the same command as before: \"%systemroot%\\system32\\oobe\\msoobe.exe /a\". If a box appears saying \"Windows is already activated\", it means your Windows XP is genuine and activated successfully.
Step 5: Deny Permissions for WPAEvents
As a final step, you need to deny permissions for WPAEvents in the registry so that Windows cannot reset it. To do this, open the registry editor again and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\WPAEvents. Right click on WPAEvents and select Permissions. Set permissions to deny for all groups and users by checking the boxes under Deny column. Click OK and close the registry editor.
