I was doing my own installation of windows and i had to repeat the activation more than once (3 times i think :tazz:) but i now cant activate it and i dont really want to buy a whole new windows package for a new product code. is there a way to still activate it without buying a new windows?

Thanks

You have one licensed copy of windows on one computer and you had to activate it three times? Was this because you formatted and re-installed? As long as you have one licensed copy on one computer you should be able to get it activated by calling Microsoft. I have read that the process is relatively painless.
