Default Delayed Windows SP2 Denies Access to Illegal CD Keys

TechTree reports that this time around Microsoft may have found a much more destructive way to get rid off Illegal copies of WindowsXp than Service Pack1. Users installing SP1 on illegal copies would simply get a 'This is a pirated copy' error message. But now Microsoft has armed itself with a huge list of illegal CD keys ensuring that not only does the SP2 not install, but also destroys the computer hard drive by rendering it unusable

You don't need this 'pirated copy' thingy to let XP destroy your HD
