had a prob with xp home install that all comm was blown away (high speen
internet through cable and dial up) tried an upgrade with my xp home disk
over the original xp home load. all seemed to go fine but when i try to log
in as user i get a prompt that "windows must be activated with ms before you
can log on" , since i still seem to have comm issues the sys will no connect
to ms and thus will not log on for me to try any other fixes. any thoughts

Take the phone option to activate instead. Follow the onscreen prompts.
