xp won’t reactivate after upgrading system stateLocked
Recently, I had to reinstall xp sp2. I used a sp2 slipstream disk. I weekly
back up my system state so I can reinstall my settings in case something like
After I reinstalled xp, I used backup to upgrade my system state. My system
state is also sp2. After I rebooted, whenever I tried to log in, a message
saying I needed to activate the product came up. I oked it but it brought me
back to the log in screen. After a couple of tries it just reboots the
system. I was able to activate it with the initial reinstall; I also tried
the reinstall without activating but both times on the reboot the same thing
Do I need to go into the recovery console and change some settings or is
there something else I need to do?
Does this activation message have to do with the restore settings?
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
