Changed the date.. Not genuine?

The date was too far ahead and I changed it. Then I get a message that Windows is not genuine. How can I re-make it genuine?

Hey Doc I saw you lurking and figured with all your builds you would know how to do it

Mike3667, When you set the date in Bios to correct time & date, you may have to do a repair install or a clean install.
