I have an HP that came with preactivated (OEM) XP Pro. I bought a bios upgrade. Boot up, log in, and Windows says I'm not activated. It looks for something in the bios that the purchased upgrade bios does not have. I either back out the new bios, or I do a full install with a new copy of XP Pro? That makes absolutely no sense to me.
