Vista Activation

M
#1
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
