Do you have problem with Windows 7 activation? Some of you may have difficulty to activate the operating system, these may due to the following reasons:
- If the Windows edition is an upgraded from earlier version then the problem is that you installed the Win version without having Vista on the computer to upgrade from. The upgrade product key does not work if Setup does not find an eligible OS installed on the computer.
- Upgrading from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS will not work, they have to be the same…..on a single hard-drive.
- The key you typed does not match the key assigned to your copy of Windows. If you’re sure that you typed it correctly, you will need to buy a new product key.
- You already use the product in one of your PC! Usually the license terms allow one copy of Windows to be used on each computer.
