Activation problem after BIOS update
Hello,

I got Windows Vista Business through MSDNAA and installed and activated it
on a new computer. All went well, until after a few days I decided to update
my BIOS, since my processor wasn't being properly detected. After the update,
the processor type changed (though I did not touch it physically) and Windows
asked for reactivation. Problem now is that it fails every single time,
probably because of my having activated it before with the same serial
number. How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance,
Vlad

Ring the product activation telephone number that is displayed during
activation.

I will do that. I tried a few weeks ago when I first had the problem and the
robot I got spoke some foreign language I could not identify. I will give it
another try, though.

Thanks,
Vlad
