Integrate Vista SP1 to OPK image. - Already activated. - Need to reactivate? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I purchased an OEM copy of Windows Vista Ultimate and as such am considered a system builder, although my OEM copy is for me on my particular computer system.  I downloaded SP1 from the system builder site and the OPK and want to make a preinstall image to install to a restore partition to my hard drive for my computer only.

     

    Now my question is, can I do this or is it going to cause problems since I have already activated my OEM copy.  I reinstalled my computer once because I like goofing around with the operating system to learn things but in the process mess things up.  The second install did not need to be reactivated as far as I know or it was done automatically over the internet.

     

    1.) How many times can I install to the exact same system with same hardware and bios without having to reactivate.  It would seem I could do it as many times as I like but please correct me if I am wrong.

     

    2.) Is using the OPK with my copy of windows going to require activation again or should I just install SP1 and do a complete PC Backup.

     

    This is the first original install diagnostics.  Never reinstalled.

    Here is the second report after reinstalling Vista and then later installing SP1.  Also WGA doesn't show up in second one???  And it's not signed???

    Does this use up my activations because I noticed the number behind the ID below is (1) instead of (3) as above

  • There is no limit to the number of times you can activate an OEM version Windows Vista, as long as it is reinstalled on the same computer.  However, if you are unable to successfully activate via the internet, then use the following procedure to activate by phone:

     

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in:  slui.exe 4

     

    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

     

    3. Select your Country.

     

    4. Follow the instructions for phone activation.

     

    5.  Once completed, restart your computer.

    Also I purchased this OEM version fomr a trusted distributer and my COA was like this when I opened the package.  I haven't applied it to my case yet as required because I wanted to inquire about getting a replacement one if possible.  Please point me in the right direction because I haven't found the solution yet.

  • You'll have to contact your "trusted distributor" for a replacement as Microsoft does not replace Microsoft OEM software or product keys.
