reactivation for a hard drive upgrade!? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just upgraded my Hard drive from an IDE 120 gig to a SATA 3.0 g 320 gig and now my vista is saying that I need to reactivate due to a hardware change.  We I try to reactivate it says that my key is already in use and will not let me go any further. I just keep getting prompted to buy another product key.  Any Ideas?
