The activation cannot be reset. You could either call ms or wipe the drive and reinstall the os.

Cheers.

If no one has run the PC, it won't be a problem. Clock doesn't start until XP installation is finalized by end user.

Otherise RW's correct. You'll probably have to call MS. It's usually pretty quick and painless though.
