And I thought he was going to give me a retail one to use, but it was a burnt copy he had. So I said, oh well, and installed XP pro. Now, a popup in the corner of the screen tells me that I need to activate it within 30 days. I dont have any data to activate it by, and I dont have the internet installed on the new rig, and another option is to call but I have no information. Is there any way around this, to like, not worry about how many days left, and without going to activation and if so, how? Thanks.
