I have a Win XP Pro box that I installed a BIOS update on successfully and rebooted.
After the reboot and arriving on the select a user to login screen. I choose a user and I receive an error that says "A problem has prevented windows from accurately checking the status of the license for this computer'
To proceed, your copy of windows must be activated with Microsoft. Do you want to activate windows now?"
Whether i choose "yes" or "no" it goes no where because this computer does not have access to the internet.
Even when booting to safe mode same problem.
Any ideas on how i can get this activated without an internet connection.
