Now if it did let you install anytime, all the softwares and probably games are crippled. More so softwares, no updates, no support and other such things. Fair enough but to cripple the software by not installing on a day you want to or after os install-reinstall is a joke.
If you're that bothered, make a note of the date it was "given away", then when re-installing reset your hardware clock to the appropriate date. It's not rocket science. Unless there is a web-activation service of course.
