I have an original (yes) copy of XP. I have a desktop PC and a laptop for somework that's not going to be connected to the internet, I installed my original XP onto the laptop, but didn't want to register it in case my main PC failed and I needed to install XP on that and I'd already wasted a registration on a laptop that isn't as crucial as my desktop.
I installed XP on the laptop and used an authentication crack in which I replaced WinLogon with a cracked copy, and used two programs, Reset2 and popup.bat which got rid of the 30-day limit thing, or so I thought. Now (30 days later, I think) Windows wont start up and says I need to register and asks if I want to. When I say Yes, it just makes the error ding and takes me back to the log-on screen.
What can I do?! I really need this laptop right now!
I can boot into Safe Mode if that helps
If this is an illegal thread, please can someone PM me the answer, this is crucial!
