I have a PC that wouldn't let me boot into windows, so i put the Windows XP Pro SP3 disk in and did a repair, and now when i try to login, it pops up and says i need to activate it. When i click Yes it just stays at the blue screen with my mouse but never pops up a screen for me to activate it, and i can't access the Task Manager either. Also when i try to boot in Safe Mode, it pops up with a message saying i need to run windows normally and activate first. Is there a way of getting this resolved without reformatting windows?
