Fresh installed XP Pro to this IBM Netvista and successfully activated the OS without any issues. :)

But when installing MS Security Essentials, the validation process says that "This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation. You might be victim of software counterfeiting."

Installing Media Player 11 encountered the same problem.

What shall I do next?

Ok. It's my fault: system date setting was incorrect; adjusted and everything is fine now. :)

Yep. That would do it.

The time/date catchs me out so often with installs.
