Windows Activated and then de-activated :@

Ok,lets start from 0=
Two days ago I reformatted the machine and instaled A GENUINE OEM WINDOWS HOME PREMIUM 32 BITS edition.
After installing it and all the drivers,I went to My SYSTEM and activated Windows.I could see the "Original" Sticker to the right.
Now,today,15PM Buenos Aires,I turn on the machine,and what do I find?=.... its Activated....well,I dont know what to say,2 minutes ago the machine said this was not a genuine copy....what could have happened?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Probably took a moment or two for Windows to find the activation. The main thing is that you now have a genuine activated system.
