Default Windows XP 64-bit - Where to Buy?

I actually have a Windows XP 64-bit CD but where in the world do I purchase a key? Is it too extinct to buy? I can't run 32-bit anymore because I only get 1.5GB of RAM displaying, ouch!

Wouldn't the 32bit Key work with the 64bit version?

No that's only Vista and later.

You can buy it here:

But tbh, it's pointless. Just go with Vista or Win 7.

XP 32bit is NT 5.1, XP 64bit is NT 5.2 (based off server 2003)

so like vin said, keys are not compatible

Just run it on XP x86. x64 is unstable as hell compared to Vista and Windows 7 x64 builds.
