How to Change OEM Serial/Key?


If i typed, by mistake, a different serial/key while installing a OEM XP
SP2, how can i change the Serial/Key?
I've Sysprep'ed and used msoobe /a but i could'nt change the serial/key

In KB, they have articles related to XP SP1 and XP Volume Keys...

The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for
users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key
to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key - all without a
reinstall!

To me it saiz:
"The application has encountered a disk-write error while updating system
components. The system may be low on disk space. Please Check available disk
space. [Error: 0x800402c9]"
Disk is 90 % free.
Thanks
