    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.
