    Can't re-activate

    Im not sure in which subject this belongs... so ill ask it here
    I bought vista home premium 32-bit from a store and installed it myself at
    home, i had a older crappy hard drive at the time. it crashed and i lost
    everything, soo i went out and bought a new one. I then reinstalled vista on
    it and all was well, except it wouldnt let me activate it! it was only ever
    used on this one computer. is there anything i can do? or am i out one
    genuine copy of vista ?

    Hello Peter,

    Use the activate by telephone method. If the automatic part fails, stay on
    the line until you get to speak to a real human.

    You need to use the phone activation method and grovel to some guy in
    India so he will let you use the software license you paid for. Ain't
    activation grand? Tired of this crap? Check out Ubuntu at www.ubuntu.com
    No activation. No becoming "genuine" and it's FREE!

    Nice bedside manner. I offered two solutions. You only offered insults.

    Like you, all he has to offer is bluster and insults. You haven't
    offered help to the OP either.

    I changed my mind.

    You're the liar and the buffoon, Frank.
