Windows 7: Phone Activation Annoyance

Phone Activation Annoyance

I am currently running 2 80Gb Intel SSD in Raid 0, due to the fact there is no TRIM support in raid I am having to reinstall about ever 5-6 months to refresh the drives the activation should be smart enough to see I am installing it on the same pc and not annoy me with a phone activation call.

When windows 7 gets native trim support for raid I will have to throw a party or something.

Before my last refresh my average was 343MB/sec, now I am back to a cool 477MB/sec it clearly has to be done

I know Microsoft doesn’t want there product stolen however I don’t want to be annoyed after paying for your product if trim was supported in raid this wouldn’t be necessary.

I have an HP probook that had Windows 7 Pro installed on it. The whole hdd somehow got corrupted, I could not even boot from a recovery partition (I think because I shrunk C: and created a D: too and it created a wierd partitioning system). I had to use a Linux live CD to erase all partitions...
