    Hi,

    Never posted here or need any help from Microsoft whatoever, but here goes...

    I've had Vista for a while - since it just came out, and I've done a couple
    of Hardware changes, the latest one being RAID where basically I had to wipe
    my Hard Drive and Re-install Vista. That was fine until it said "The Product
    Key you typed in is already in use" The only options suggest I can only buy
    another product key, but surely hardware addition ONLY (I haven't completely
    changed my PC) would mean they let me off and allow me to activate Windows
    without having to buy another Product Key.

    Is there a way around this whereby I get an unlimited activated copy of
    Vista without paying money?

    Cheers - all help is gladly accepted and appreciated :)

    Hey,

    This is really a forum for .NET related questions, but if I were you, I'd
    call the activation center or product support and get it fixed.
