    How can I find out the registered serial number of my copy of Windows XP?
    I have computers running XP, 2 under emulation, and 3 install discs.
    I assume that if I upgrade to P4 I will need to install XP again and will need my ID

    You don't have to reinstall XP for upgrading Parallels, and the serial number is conveniently placed on the box of your legit XP CD. ;)

    I'm glad I don;t have to reinstall XP, but as for the s.nos - I have 3 boxes, and they all appear official - I know I bought 3 - but at various times. When I've tried to install them in my other macs, they've been rejected, so clearly they are already installed elsewhere, so I'd love to match my legal copies with legal installs.

    If that happens, contact MS.

    MS were exceedingly helpful and gave me 2 apps to find my s.nos and product keys.
