Product key already in use
I have a laptop that I bought Windows Vista Upgrade through the marketplace
on. Through my rough usage on my computer I ended up having to replace my
HDD do to fatal HDD errors. I desicided to get a hybrid drive this time for
my laptop and I get the already in use error. Vista is as good as
uninstalled off my other HDD, still using the same computer just a newer
large hybrid drive.

Any Ideas?

Hi Grant,

When you come to activation, use the phone option. Takes longer, but it will
get activated this way. The change in hardware will cause the prior
activation hash to not match with the new one, so necessitates the lengthier
procedure.
