Windows 2003 P2V and Windows Activation

I just did a P2V on one of my WIdows 2003 server and when I boot up this new VM it states that I only have 3 days left to activate windows. Is there any "Hack" I can use to remove the winodws actication or trick it so my test VM does time out in three days?????

No you will need to reactivate - its because the drastic hardware change the OS is seeing which is why it is requiring activation.
