Vista Activation
I have a Sony Vaio VGC-LA1. Originally it was running Windows XP Media Centre
2005. I upgraded it to Vista Home Premium using a Vista Express Upgrade Disc
sent to me from Sony. this included all the relevant updated drivers and
applications.
A few weeks ago the HDD died and had to be replaced. I've reinstalled XP
from my recovery disc, then upgraded again to Vista using Vista Express Disc.
However I can't activate Vista as it says its already in use and I require
another license.
How can I activate it?

3. Select your Country.

4. Follow the instructions for phone activation.

5. Once completed, restart your computer.
