Just for info:

So Windows XP SP2 can be used until 2010 and then it must be SP3 or Vista or newer.

Thanks, but the http://www.faac.unesp.br/servicos/downl ... br_x86.exe is the SP1a, I tried on google but some links were broken and others were from SP1a with the name of SP1.

Windows XP SP1a is the same as Windows XP SP1 except that the Microsoft virtual machine (VM) is removed in SP1a. You can download it from my server.

Why not just upgrade the PC to SP3? Also no-one really "owns" a copy beyond who has the licence sticker - the previous owner may have "registered" it but that doesn't mean they "own" it.

Yeah...an easy way to look at it with OEM copies is that Windows is tied to the machine, not the owner. A retail copy would be tied to the owner. VLK would be tied to the purchasing company.

EDIT: THE BIG 200! Now I can get Longhorn 4067 as a reward, right?

It's not really tied to the owner as you don't have to tell them who owns it, all you have to do is activate it, which gives them some information about your PC. It can then be reactivated on a different PC whether or not it belongs to the same person, they never know if it's now owned by someone else - if you buy a second-hand copy you just activate it again with them (usually you'd have to ring up and say it's not installed on any other PCs for them to give you an activation code, it's a common myth that you can only activate each key once and then you have to buy a brand new one if you've used up all the automatic activations for the key, which is usually just one).

i meant register windows in my name, as for ownership, as far as i know if you paid for a product key then thats your key,you own it.

Just for a reference, Microsoft has published a support article to tell people about product support lifecycle.
