Hi,

Did you install by booting the disk or by inserting it into a running XP
installation and choosing the upgrade path. The former is considered a clean
install, while the latter is not. If you did the former, then you will need
to reinstall as an upgrade to the existing installation and use your Product
Key at that point.
