Activation product key removes on disable

On the laptop Im using, I had activated the product ok when the LAN was enabled in the BIOS but when I disabled the LAN in the BIOS the activation product key asks to be activated again with the 3 days, does any body have an idea or work round to this issue?

Changing or removing the MAC of the NIC with which Windows was activated will almost always result in the request to re-activate.

Either re-enable the NIC, or re-activate.

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
