  • Hello salomon p,

    If you installed Vista yesterday you should be able to validate since you're in your grace period.  You can go here: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click Validate Windows.

    Can you tell me what error code you get if validation fails?  It will be gray and in brackets at the end of the message on the validation failure webpage that you'll be directed to if validation fails.

    If it gives you a non-activated message... please also post the error code you get when you try to change your product key.  Thanks a lot!
