do you have to re activate after an xp pro upgrade

Hi Guys,
A friend of mine has got a liecence from Uni and a copy of XP Pro and has upgraded his laptop, the question is does he have to get on the internet to activate it ( or by post or phone to MS)?

Either online or by phone. Choose which option when they appear on screen. The number to ring will be shown. But its a lengthy process. Much quicker on line.

If there is an internet connection, then the activation could be made via that means. Personally, I find it easier to phone the Microsoft freephone number and get the activation code that way (notepad and pen/pencil required). Remember Microsoft like to activate their product within 30 days after installation of the disc, save constant pop-up warnings.
