Now it wants me to re-license it.
I suspect my first  mistake was to not have a mac address specified in  vif
It was activated with a MAK licience.

I suppose I could call Microsoft but I'd rather learn how to do it right and

Changing the disk size shouldn't require reactivation by itself, but a MAC address change will. If you still have the original image, try booting it up to determine its auto-generated MAC, then specifying that in the domU configuration file.
