I use orbits utility to activate immediately after installation, easier then tapping in keys.

7068 activated without a hitch
I never used any hacks on it but simply made the rare boots into that install once the next 64bit update was found and installed. That amounted to less then a dozen times there. When finally switching ISPs here then I ran into the past time allowed prompting where the wipe and fresh copy is still waiting to be connected online and activated.

Good golly gosh! The tv tuner card in the 64bit 7000 gets picture! I'm stll trying to get that to work in the 32bit 7068 which is activated!
