I'm assuming you're not using the restore disc that came with the laptop, as that would not normally require the COA number to be entered. I'm also assuming you're using the COA number that's on a label on the machine. in that case, I would guess that the disk you are using is a rertail version of XP Home and you require an OEM version. How you aquire that is up to you, but that's what the problem is.
