Windows XP MCE 2005 Activation RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi there, I put a new mobo into my PC and done a  repair install so I could keep all my settings and files. It want's me to activate windows. If I activate it will it appear as it being on 2 computers and could I get into trouble for it? It's the same HDD and version of windows.

  • Hello Luke,

    Did you replace the motherboard with the same make and model as the previous motherboard that was in this machine?  Can you also provide me with what type of MCE you have, such as Retail, OEM or did it come preinstalled on this computer?


    Thank you,
