    No new hardware, just whacking a slew of software before the PC is donated to a Church. Why did activation kick in?

  • It appears you installed Windows XP using a generic OEM Windows XP CD instead of using the genuine Dell Windows XP Reinstallation CD.  That is why you were requested to activate, which must be performed using the "activate by phone" method.

  • I got the activation to work via the net by hitting the retry button. Almost broke the monitor, but it worked. I'm still trying to find out why I needed to reactivate. And my Dell is about seven years old so of course I had OEM discs.

  • LilBro,

     

    Interesting question! First I must say this is out of the scope for the WGA Forum.  Your OEM license for XP comes with certain restrictions that make it less flexible, and therefore less expensive, than the retail license for XP.  One of the limitations is that the license is "married" to the computer onto which it is first installed, and by the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) it is not permitted to be moved to any another computer.  In order to read your EULA, click Start>Run, type winver and click OK, then click on the link for the license terms or EULA.

     

    The interpretation and enforcement of the OEM EULA regards a change in motherboard for the reason of upgrading to get new features, enhanced performance, etc, constitutes a "new computer."  Reactivation is to ensure that the original license agreement is upheld.
