    Vista Activation

    I had to reinstall Vista. I already had
    it activated. Now that I reinstalled it,
    will the second activation fail ?

    When I had Win XP, I had to call India.
    and read them a bunch of numbers, and I
    had to explain just what the heck I was
    up to, in order to cause the activation to
    fail.

    Does Vista behave the same way ?
    I installed it the first time less than
    a month ago. Does the length of time
    between installs have anything to do
    with a failed activation ? I have the
    exact same hardware for the second
    install.

    Please help me to understand about
    the restrictions of Vista activation.

    Thanks
    Mike
