  • Iamsam,

    This is expected behavior.

    The screen that tells you this also leads you to a phone number for your world region to call and talk to an activation representative.

    The rep will ask you a couple of questions to ensue that you are using the copy of XP you have in accordance with the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA), and if so they will give you an activation code or reset the Product Key in the database.

    Most people say this takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
