  • OEM License are not transferable across motherboards except under very limited circumstances.

    If your is a retail license, you will have to use operator activation.


    telephone activation (operator calls)

    Click on the Start button

    in the Search box, type

    SLUI   4

    and hit the Enter key

    follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you
