    I purchased several 9455xl units that have the 20 gig hard drive instead of the flash chip. I am trying to increase the size of the XPe partition and am getting an error which prevents me from logging on. I used partition magic to resize the partition. The error is as follows.

    A problem is preventing Windows form accurately checking the license for this computer. Error code 0x80070002

    Any ideas what I can do about it or am I just going about this the wrong way.

    Hi,

    Microsoft set a limit in XPe to a maximum of 1GB for the system partition to stop it being used as cheap replacement for full XP Pro.

    Try creating a primary partition (C drive) of say 900MB and then a data partition (d drive) with the rest of the space.

    Cheers,
    -TT
