Pars Technology FM20-HG and Windows 7 activation
Hello everyone :)
We bought 33 PARS FM20-HG machines just before they went bust. XP works fine on them but now we are now moving to Windows 7 across the school.
We are using the KMS way of activating the Windows 7 PC's and it is working well, until we came across the ICT Suite with these PARS computers in it. Our older PARS machines activate fine using KMS (as do all of the other PC's in the school) however these ones will not activate. They say they are genuine in the VAMT 2.0 tool but they stick with the "Out Of Box Grace Period" and will not activate. I have tried different keys (KMS and MAK) but no avail.
I have scoured the net for answers but I am coming up with nothing. The BIOS could be the problem but after ringing NSOptimum (the company that took over PARS), I may aswell have been talking to a chimp (no offence to chimps).
Has anyone had a similar problem or does anyone have these PARS machines and are having the same problems and have a up-to-date BIOS they could send me testing?
Thanks for any help,
