Wron Installation Type
Of course my computer crashed and burned when I tried to upgrade from XP sp2
tto Vista business. Went through the entire install process until the Last
then BSOD. Would pass POST start to install then nothing. tried to do the
usual F8 routine without any luck. NO hardware problems identified. Unplugged
everything not bolted down. Still nothing. Could not access the operating
system, it would not let me do a reinstall, so I did a clean Install and
everything is working perfectly BUT no I cannot activate it as I did not
start the installation from within XP. As i could not access it.

What do I do now. Is there a number I can call to activate. I cannot get
that Info from my system.
Any help would be appreciated.

Dave

You have a 30-day gratis period for working with Vista after that your
system will go to Reduced Functionality Mode, only work activating. I
don't know in your case but be sure that no cable for Internet or Lan
is plugged in the system. After that invoke the Activation wizard
choose activate by phone and Call your Local MS Customer support
enjoy
