    Re-Activating Windows Vista

    Formating my mates pc from vista as his installation has currupt,

    He has an OEM version of vista which has already been activated (from previous install)

    You should be fine, however if all else fails you'll have to phone Microsoft to activate Vista.

    If im thinking right its a computer now, so if you need to phone activate you don't need to talk to someone with a million questions.

    I've got a OEM 32bit Vista and I've activated it about 6 times now (on the same machine of course)
