I recently installed windows 7 on my new computer, i previously had windows on it but i did a clean install as i wanted to start from a clean slate.
When i tried to enter my product key in the setup it wouldn't accept it, now it is installed though i enter it in the activation part of the control panel and it returns the error:
"The activation server determined that the specific product key could not be used"
I am migrating my copy of windows 7 from my laptop to this computer so it was fine when i activated my laptop a few months ago but now when i try and activate my new computer it comes up with the error.
I was going to wipe my laptop in a couple of days when i got time and i was wondering if that would be what i need to make it so the second computer will activate or if it's something else.
Oh, one other thing, i got my licence key through the uni student offer meaning that i'm not sure if its an upgrade key or not..
