So heres whats happened. I bought a new PC, ASUS laptop (N61vn). For reasons not relevant to the issue, i needed to re-install the OS. So i put in the recovery disc, all goes well and soon im back in Windows 7 Home Premium. So far so good. I then proceed to enter my upgrade key to Windows 7 Ultimate. Once again, all goes well and im soon going through all the motions of installing the programs i like, need for work, getting the settings the way i like etc, etc.
Today i look at Computer>Properties and realise i have 2 days until automatic activation, so i thought i would activate today. Press the button and it asks to activate online now, so i press yes and try to activate.
It asks for my product key, so i enter my win 7 ultimate upgrade key, and get denied cause its only for upgrades. So i enter the key off the bottom of the notebook, and get denied cause i am using wrong version of windows.
Any ideas on how i can activate without re-installing?
Thanks in advance
