Activation Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got my email with a key a while back but couldn't download (too busy). Today I found that the download is available until 14th July for those with a key and successfully got the ISO. I extracted and installed OK but upon login am told that my install has expired; there are several options but none seem to do anything.

    I bought a new HDD to test and all seems well apart from this, what's the solution?

  • I'm using the public beta, got to choose my pic (a goldfish) then a background (opted for the 'field') then login, says loading your desktop. The the activation box comes up?

    I'm doing nothing illegal here! This download came from MS Vista page! Can't even login! There are shields against some of the options and they just seem to hang.

    Can't even get to the page to phone for activation? The only fixes I found suggest safe mode and msconfig hacks but thought I'd try an answer from a genuine 'Technet techie'?
