Is it possible to backup the Microsoft's XP activation code from an existing machine for future use in case one needs to reformat and reinstal XP. This will save the hassle of phoning Microsoft to explain for a new set of code to activate XP.

Is there a way to by-pass this?

Cheers

Check out this (http://is-it-true.org/nt/xp/atips/atips13.shtml) site for instructions on backing up Activation.

You shouldn't need to phone Microsoft if the hardware hasn't changed - a simple internet activation should still work, as its the same machine. If the hardware has changed, you'll still need to phone microsoft.
