I need help. My harddrive crashed so I had to get a new one. I went to re-install XP Pro on the new drive and I had no problems - the same CDROM I purchased with the same CD Product key. So I go to activate it and it says that the key is at it's limit of number of activations. Now I only have 30 days left to activate or quit. How the heck can I get around this without having to deal with Microsoft over the phone (I hate dealing with them)?

I went ahead and called MS and got it corrected. Damn software pirates cause things to become so cumbersome for those who are legit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
