Activation Repatition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guess I have to play Microsoft Bingo again, I have activated my Windows XP Sp2 may many time and why do you ask because I want to test different operating systems and beta versions and they involve re-installing my original version of windows... I don't mind because the AMD64 3400+ is quick enough but as usual the activation calls me 'pirate' and accuses me of having a non geuine version!!! If thsi is what is going to happen with Vista I will be using Linux by January 2007!

    I have a geunine version, I have a box version and I am not a pirate... sorry about the rant but I had to get it off my chest.
