Windows 7 Activation

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So is the only other way to activate windows 7 over the phone? Online activation gives me this issue. mad.gif

It is because I activated windows 7 too much with my key from MSDNAA apparently...is 15 times+ on the same PC too much? rolleyes.gif

I get this issue.

524

Don't say anything about bootloaders or such. tongue.gif

I just hate over the phone activation crap.

Yup, phone. Shouldn't be too much of a pain, I don't really have problems when I call.

Yeah I think the limit is like 10 times because I have reached my limit of uses. Honestly just phone their automated service it takes like one or two minutes and its done.

You know that little guide of mine? rolleyes.gif

Also, there were some issues with homegroup that wouldn't fix one time and other things I was testing out.

Sadly I keep forgetting to activate windows before creating a system image lol.

Wait... they actually set a limit to the amount of times it can be activated? Does this mean that I will have reached my limit after like 2 more reformats?

I'm using an OEM version, so is Sean's problem with the regular version?

You can activate Windows 10 times with a product key before you cannot do it anymore. Once you've reached that cap, you have to call Microsoft and they will reset it for you.
