You can certainly use a Linux disk to boot to the machine. You may be able to use a third party application to change the password. However, you can also look at a registry process, to try to get around the problem. http://www.computing.net/howtos/show/how-to-fix-windows-activation-problem/212.html. However, when it comes to windows Activation, you always have to be on the up and up. You will always be on the short end of the stick if the copy is not autehntic.

Have you tried a "repair" install?  Give this article a look, I think it will fix you right up!

Good luck!

Just a thought have you checked the date in bios?  If your date is way off you will get this type of behavior.
