Windows Activation Error 0x8007000D

I get a Windows Activation Error on Beta 2, which I downloaded from Connect
and installed as an upgrade over Windows XP Pro. Error Code 0x8007000D.
"More information" tells me "the data is invalid".

I used the Beta 2 Business key I got on connect. I haven't tried the Home
or Enterprise Server keys I got yet.

You can use the Server keys, you will get an invalid license error, its
either another Business key or Ultimate keys. I suspect this attributed to
the upgrade, try doing a clean install instead or try activating under
another Admin account.

Are the Beta 2 keys limited to one activation on one machine only? Previous
keys seemed to work on multiples, which is good in my environment (I'm trying
to let my helpdesk get some experience with the product).

Nah you can update about 10 machines on one single key - thereabouts. Might
depend on which program you're attached to, but if the worst comes to the
worst, just generate a new key from MSDN or Connect.

Check your MSDN license agreement to find out how many activations are
possible. The last time I checked, it was 10.

Try uninstalling daemon tools if you have it installed!

I should have also said, if Daemon Tools is the cause then after
un-install of DT and a successful activation don't re-install DT as
your Vista becomes "de-activated" again and re-activation will fail
until DT is removed.

I upgraded from xp pro as well and I have registered 3 or 4 times. Site says
thank you for registering but keep getting balloon popup that says I am not
activated and only have 9 days left. Can't be just this small amount of
people having this issue. I have even gotten confirmation email everytime I
have registered/activated vista.
