    I'm sure its a re-install if the eval has lapsed.

    Someone else can verify.

      i think activation and evaluation are 2 different things.

      u need to activate your installation within a certain number of days. if u don't, all u can do after this time has passed is to log on and activate it. u shouldn't need any key for that. as long the network setup functions correctly, windows can activate via the microsoft server.

      evaluation is different. if that time has passed, u can't use it anymore. in that case it's time for a format c: and reinstallation.

        I'm not sure what you mean by "activation key" (maybe the CD key?) but here's an M$ link about activation. You should be able to log on and activate over the internet or by phone.
