I do that with all of my CD's.  The key code and what the cd belongs to.

Can you just write the key code onto a label you stick onto the rearranged
hardware? That's what one of my clients did when the label fell off and
disappeared. He had writen down every key code and filed them.

Same motherboard, disk, you name it.  The only thing not moved was the
power
supply.

XP is not asking for anything.  The installer was trying to be proactive.
We think the sticker is tamper proof which would prevent a clean sticker
move.

I could cut the sticker out of the tower case with my trusty saw, but that
seems wasteful since the case is, for all practical purposes, brand new.
The installer could use it elsewhere since that's what he does for a
living
. . .

We decided to mount the phone system on the wall in a rack.  The

sticker is on
the tower case.  The installer spent 1/2 hour on the phone with MS
trying to get a new license key code for Win XP.

It sounds like the root problem is that XP fired up the
re-enter the activation key logic.  Just doing what you say
above should not have fired this event.  A more likely
scenario is that major components have been changed, I'm
guessing the motherboard/cpu.  If that's the case, you
basically now have another PC.

If this were me, I'd go through the activation via phone
routine using the original key and move the sticker to the new box.
