Re: Did you click on "change product key" and type the one you purchased in the boxes?
I'm not trying to be offensive, but if you re-read my original post, you'll realize that that just doesn't work ... neither before nor after running the "slmgr.vbs /ipk key
Re: Time to call MS so you know all is well with your key and activation.
Again, I'm not trying to be offensive, but all is not well with this method of activation (so far). Not too many customers out there that would accept a system that reboots every 20 minutes.
Can any of the other "slmgr.vbs" switches be used to get this thing to stop rebooting (i.e., stop thinking
its an expired eval image)? I'm pretty much willing to try just about anything. Is there another method? Calling Microsoft would cost more than the runtime product activation keys I bought.
Any of you Microsoft types monitoring this forum? Would love to hear from you on this! Really!
