That makes you a software pirate and they don't get much help around here.

You will need to buy another copy of FSX or get the original DVD back from your buddy.  FSX can be installed on two separate computers but the last installation is the one that shows the hardware configuration.  So, when you get it back from your buddy, you will have some problems because he overwrote your original activation setup and the activation will not work.  Contacting Microsoft to help you with a reactivation will not work either.  It is very difficult to find the DVD version of FSX or Acceleration or FSX Gold so it does not look good for you.

 

You can purchase and download FSX-SE though!!

You can get FSX Gold for about 25$ if you look around. It has Acceleration with it. No more futzing with updates. 

Don't give to friends.
