  • I changed my hard disk then re install Vista home premium, and activate and validate with genuine validation. it done,  Then I changed my RAM chip from 2* 256 memory chip to one  1GB RAM, I again re installed the VISTA home premium, this time i am unable to activate. when I tried it said " the product id is already in use" , the product id is diffrent from my previous installed vista product id.

  • You need to telephone activate. Please follow the instructions in the dialogue box when attempting to activate online (when it errors-out, it will give you the ability to telephone activate in your geographical region).
