    I used the Paragon tool to create a virtual disk of the hard disk from my machine with a broken motherboard.

    I opened a VM on my new Win7 Pro 64. I booted from the VHD and it seemed to work. I get to a screen that tells me I have to reactivate before I can log on. I am unable to click on the do it online button. There is no apparent effect. And then I have to use a key combination to get the cursor back onto my Win7 screen.

    Any suggestions of a way around this?

    No, I can't. I appear to have no ability to interact with the OS in the Virtual machine. If I look at the interface selections page, it is all grayed out. Everything except hard disks seems to be selected though.
