Pulled dying HDD and now Windows wants to activate again. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just had to pull out a dying hard disk from my PC - it was the boot drive (not drive with Windows on) and  now Windows has decided there have been significant changes since it was activated. 

    I know I'll have to activate via phone but I'm puzzled because Windows has seen this drive before and used it - just at a different SCSI ID (it was at 3 - is now at 0), and has stayed at the letter it had before the other drive was pulled (Drive F).

    I'm using XP 64bit (OEM version) with service pack 2 installed and the key is genuine.

    Any ideas as to why a drive known to Windows being moved would cause it to need reactivating would be of immense help.

    David.

    No, I do not. This forum is for support of Windows Genuine Advantage and unfortunetly, the Intricacies of Product Activation are outside my area of Knowledge.

     

    You may be able to get an answer by posting to the Windows XP forum at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertzone/newsgroups/reader.mspx
