So I installed boot camp and then XP SP2 whatever. Had to Activate Windows to download all the windows updates. Everything is great. So I go back to OSX, and run VMWare with my BootCamp Partition. Everything works and is great but now windows tells me that I have 3 days to Activate Windows again because too much of my hardware is changed. Now I understand why this is doing this... however, did you have this problem? And if I Activate again in VMWare, whenever I reboot back into Bootcamp XP, will I have to Activate again?
