  • Hello Dave Navy,

    Install normally from your source, usually Genuine Microsoft hologrammed installation disc(s) but could also be a downloaded and saved Office installation file, or if on a managed network, the network share containing the Office installation files.

    When prompted to activate, use the "Activate by Telephone" choice, which is a challenge-and-response system.  The Office Activation Wizard will display an "Installation ID" of something like 54 numbers, which you read into or keypunch into the automated activation system over the phone.  The automated phone system will check the numbers and if Genuine, it will give you an "Activation ID" of 54 more numbers for you to enter into the Office Activation Wizard on your computer, which will activate your Office installation.  Once activated, you are done.

    If your situation allows copying files to the computer, then please visit http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=b444bf18-79ea-46c6-8a81-9db49b4ab6e5 using another computer, download Office 2007 SP2, move it to this computer, then install SP2.
