Authentication of ULTMATE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought the Vista ULTIMATE CD in April 2007 in Best Buy and installed it (unfortunately) then on a Pentium 3 Lapatop I had. I naturally activated that installation. I have since had problems with that old computer and it is NO LONGER FUNTIONAL.

     

    1. I have a new computer and 7 days ago (or less) I installed the ULTIMATE upgrade on my ONLY functional laptop.

     

    Problems began immediately with Authentication. It says the product is already registered and I need to buy a new CODE.

     

    Q. How can I go around this as I do not have 2 computers running the same ULTIMATE product, but one as I already CANNOT use laptop one. The Pentium 3 laptop has now got the original Win XP Pro that I bought it with. Its a Sony.
