Windows 7: Weird Phone Activation Message - System Says Office Instead of Windows

Weird Phone Activation Message - System Says Office Instead of Windows

I recently clean-installed Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium OEM. When I did the phone activation, the automated voice menu asked me to tell it how many computers were installed with this version of Microsoft Office. Should I try to get through to a live Microsoft agent and let them know that they have incorrectly identified my copy of 7 as a copy of Office?

Hello ESL,

Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you dialed the correct phone activation number for Windows 7. If you did, then yeah wait to talk to an activation operator.

Thanks, Brink. Yes, the number I used was the correct one. I'll contact a live activation operator. Thanks!
