Re: Activation of vista
Basically if End User A gives End User B his Vista, End User B can use it as
long as the Product Key is not already or currently tied up by End User A.
You can't use one Vista license on any more than one box as with XP.
If you're having trouble activating, and you have the DVD in hand, simply
call MSFT and ask them to connect you with activation and read them the part
number of the DVD. They can generate you a PK that works, but what can't
happen is that your boss is still using the Vista whether he likes it or
not--i.e. if he has the PK engaged you can't use it. If he formats it, and
then you try to activate the PK and it won't work for whatever reason, call
them as above.
There are several numbers but (800) MICROSOFT (642-7676) or (800) 936-5700
