This is very common to "nLite" installs.

Not a bug but a choice. Tell more about your original XP Pro CD.

The hack jobs I've seen pass validation now.

So pull out that XP CD and look real close at it. Is it on CDR? If so we have our answer. It's that hack job. Same for pre-installed ebay laptops.

This is not a bug. It's a side effect of this hack job or "illegal" copy of windows. Ask the seller to fix it.
