    Unable to activate Vista!

    I am unable to activate Vista even when the key is legit which was obtained
    from the beta site. This is my 2nd install instance. My first install using
    the same key was able to activate.

    I went through phone activation. The customer service officer was also
    unable to generate a corresponding keyset to activate.

    Bug?

    Its possible that you are experiencing Server Time out error because so many
    persons are trying activate at the same time. I recommend trying at a later
    date, you have 14 day grace period.

    I dun tink it is a server timeout. Assuming the activation server is the
    same, I tried multiple times and also did Longhorn Server beta activation at
    the same time. The longhorn server activation went through.

    Another thing is that, the phone support agent is also unable to activate
    for me, which I have to repeat the numbers to confirm that it is correct (but
    not activatable).

    Different Servers, for different programs, Longhorn Server is only available
    to Technical Testers, TAP and I think MSDN.
