Guys ,,I received my windows 7 today but the KEY is not correct? - Page 2

As much hate as they get, Microsoft is really good about getting products activated. They've saved me much pain in getting licenses transferred from older machines, etc. Their activiation department, while it IS based in India, is very willing to work with you.

I've used the several times to re-activate keys after full re-installs. Absolutely top-notch customer service. Reps would take over the computer and do everything for me while I sat back and enjoyed some lemonade.

They still do, you have to disable your internet adapter for it to give you that number.

Yep, the service on that line is phenomenal. They'll also transfer a license if you change the motherboard and you own an OEM product. They've done it for me several times, atleast.

EDIT: Reported the post that ninja'd mine. That popped up when my post went to go up LOL

Same here. I always buy the OEM OS's cause it's cheaper and I've never had a problem with getting it activated after building a new system or upgrading a component.
