I just bought and downloaded VMWare Fusion 3.0 for my Macbook Pro.

I have a serial number for Windows XP and I was wondering if there is anyway or anywhere on the internet I can download a free trial and enter in the serial number because I do not have the disc. Also, it cannot be a torrent because I am at college and the network will not allow us to download torrents.

Thanks

If you have a legal serial number and license for Windows XP, you can borrow a copy from a friend, burn it, and then use that copy and your serial number to install and activate it. This is perfectly legal and even recommended by MS customer support for folks who have lost or damaged their original copy.

You just need to make sure that the copy you borrow and burn is the exact same as what your serial number corresponds to. In other words, if your SN is for a boxed MS XP Home SP2 full install, then you need to borrow the same version.

Regards.

I'm afraid your friend is out of luck.
