  • Hello roace:

     

    Have you already activated Windows since you reinstalled on the new hard drive?

    Are you getting a message saying your activation limit has been exceeded?

     

    Thanks,

    Greg

    roace:

    At this point you will need to call in to have your copy of Windows activated.  here's a link on help with activating:

  • Hi,

    i seem to have the same problem as the one discussed above.it says the activation limit has exceeded.

    i just wanted to know why there is a limit?

    i frequently reinstall windows (have done atleast 10 times).it maybe cause of crashes or cause i tweak settings .

    but each time i could activate windows but this time it says the "the number of times u can activate with this product key has been exceeded"

    please help! 

     

    thanks
