Hi.

 

I did a repair to the XP installation with the Windows CD after the machine failed to boot with the message that some files were missing or corrupt. Now I get the activation screen and can't proceed further. There has been no hardware change.

 

Wondering if there is a work around or do I have to call the tech support. The machine is not connected to the net, so online activation is  not possible.

 

Thanks in advance
