Cisco PIX Failover License

I have 2 units of Cisco PIX 515 running in failover mode now.  I have disabled the failover, and have taken out the standby unit for other purpose.  However, when I boot up the secondary unit in standalone, I get the following message at the console screen, and cannot proceed from there on:

=========================== NOTICE ===========================
This machine is licensed as a secondary failover unit, but lacks a connection to a fully-licensed primary PIX. The current setup is an invalid failover setup. This machine will not continue rebooting in its current state.
==============================================================

I know this has to be the licensing issue.  I am just hoping there is a way to reset it, or convert it so that it can be operating in standalone, without upgrading the license.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

These units are designed to operate only as a backup while the primary is being repaired.
You really need to upgrade it to have a primarly license before you can use it practically.

It should continue to work in its current configuration, although it will periodically reboot.
