vista reinstall after system-crash - activation failed
Hello,

after my harddisk and motherboard crashed last week, I had to reinstall
vista (x64, ultimate) on my new system (new motherboard and harddisk). I just
tried to activate the new installation and got the error message that my key
has been activated and is in use. how can I reactivate my vista?

thanks,
sabrina

You call MS's Software Activation Department and have them reset the
activation. If you didn't see the phone number when the activation was
rejected, the use Google to find the phone number.
