  • Question

  •  

    Dear all,

    I have never posted a request here before, so please be nice..:)  I had a computer fry from a lightning strike and needed to do piece together a frankenstein PC that I basically use for email & family accounting.  I installed the OEM version of vistahome premium SP1 that was on the fried PC...For whatever reason, it never would activate...I was able to avoid this for a few months by running the "slmgr -rearm" to bypass the activation...now this does not even work.  I really do not want to by another activation code, when the OEM version that I have was purchased when I had the previous computer which is now fried.....any suggestions?  thanks for any input....worshipman

  • Hello worshipman,

    There are two problems that I see.

    1) Activation: To Activate an OEM Windows, it must be done By Phone.  Activation over the Internet will not work. When you call the number provided by the Activate by Phone process, you will first be talking to an Automated Phone Prompt. The Propmt may be unable to process the Activation. In that event, call again, but this time do not enter anything to the Prompt.  This will force the phone prompt to transfer you to a Live Activation rep.

    2) Licensing: OEM Software are licensed to only to be run on the first computer it is installed on. In other words, it's not allowed to be moved to a different computer. If the computer (that an OEM Windows was originally install on) dies, the OEM License dies with it.

    At this point, even if you Activated by Phone, the Phone Propmt (or the Live Activation Rep) will ask question to determine if the windows is being used within it's licensing terms.  By moving the OEM software to a new computer, the licensing terms would be broken and Activation would not be provided.

    Sorry for having to break this bad news to you,

    You have a machine that was built in late 2005, running a 'free upgrade' version of Vista.
    The only problem that I can see is that you haven't activated it yet - this will have to be done by phone.
     
    Click on Start
    in the Search box, type
    SLUI   4
    hit the Enter Key
    Follow the instructions for your local area - if the automated system fails, then redial, and do not respond when asked which service you require - this should force an operator to respond.

    Does this apply to the hard drive only or the entire computer?  If the entire computer and graphics card dies or the hard drive fails what happens?

    If this applies to the hard drive can I place it on a different motherboard etc?

    Thank you,

    You can replace a Hard drive with no problems - the thing that causes the problems in most cases is the motherboard, as MS consider that to be the bass for the installation.
