Windows 7: Activation error when upgraded from XP to Win 7 Home Pre - 0x-C004C008

15 Mar 2014   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 32bit
Activation error when upgraded from XP to Win 7 Home Pre - 0x-C004C008

I purchased this direct from MS (contained 32 & 64 bit DVD's) for a previous HP laptop which is now kaput.
So I thought I would upgrade a really old laptop "Hi Grade TW3-EAA" with my "purchased & licensed" copy of Win 7 HP from Win XP. Had no errors at upgrade time after I entered the PK (or that I noticed).
Has been working until today.
After the latest "auto update" today I saw the "activation" icon in the sys tray (NOT been there prior to today's auto-update)!
So I foolishly entered the PK that belongs to the DVD I used to upgrade.

Only have the PRODUCT KEY Label with the full key.
On DVD: Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit, X15-60498-01

You need to use Operator Activation to move a license from one computer to another -
NOTE: you cannot have the same license installed on more than one computer.

telephone activation (operator calls)
Click on the Start button
in the Search box, type
and hit the Enter key
follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you
