I made some major changes to a computer in my home. The system is running
Windows XP Pro service pack 3, but I had some problems with an add-on hard
drive. I removed the drive leaving just the primary c drive intact. I also
added some memory and removed a video card to allow the system to use the
computers main board onboard video. So yes, I made some significant changes
to the system. The commuter is not connected to a network, nor is it
connected to the Internet. I have no plans to connect it the internet
either so there is no network adapter installed. I do have the original
activation code from the Windows XP box, and have all of the service packs
and latest updates brought over from my other computer that is connected to
the internet. The question I have is simple. Since I made all of the
changes to the computer, it wants to reactivate, but like I said earlier it
is not connected, can I reactivate this computer without reinstalling
everything and getting it connected? I really don't want to buy a new
network adapter just to get this thing working.
