    So i was testing Vista on my laptop, borrowed from a friend, don't really like it. Well, the 30 days is up and now its making me activate it. Is there any way i can get around that so I can get the files I need off my laptop and just put XP back on?

    you could remove the hard drive and plug it into another machine to get data off of it. May also use a linux live cd and a usb external hard drive to copy files.

    Neither of those methods mess with the activation. If you want to bypass that... don't. Not legal.
