Another topic about this?

There are already a few topics about the same thing, didnt you find your answer there?

Off course your 30-day is going to end without a serial inputed 8-) .

Try the rearm trick for Vista (maximum is 120 days)
Otherwise 2 options:

1) A ''real serial'' to activate, but it cant be used anymore (this buid because its expired)
2) After 120 days with rearm trick reinstall it.

Is there an option that if I will set the date to some other date it will accept that?

First things first:

Its it in:
1) Virtual PC/VMware?
2) Real PC?

If:
1) Set Date in BIOS correct and check if it works, otherwise reinstall

If:
2) Set Data in BIOS and reinstall.


This build has expired at the beginning of june 2008, so set your date before that (the best date and safest = 01/01/2008).

(Beta builds cant be activated trough internet without special key and/or the right date)

The beta works on Virtual PC 2007 SP1 when BIOS date changed to 31/12/2007, and it will stay that way forever :P

Thats the advantage of VPC over VMWare, VPC doesnt sync time (after applying the text) not even a minute.

VMWare will hold the year and month, but if its 1 day further in real time, the VMWare time will also move with 1 day.

I hope that VMWare also get that trick that after poweroff the time will not pass.
