Hi

Is this possible? How about if you use volumeid to change the hard drive back to the original volume serial so every piece of hardware is the same? Also is there a limit to how many times you can activate over the internet before it asks you to ring them up?

In my experience, you can only activate a cd key once. Reactivation always requires calling them up. I might be wrong though, since I use different licenses than most other people here seem to.

I've activated via the web lots of times and never had to ring up yet despite changing my computer quite a lot. I think I've only activated twice in between 120 days, I just wondered if there was a limit on the whole product ID or between 120 days as to how many times you can activate on the web. I'll try it on my NC10 that uses a VLK but I'm sure I had to activate it when I reinstalled from the samsung CD

Yes There Is A Limit To How Many Times You Can Activate Your Computer Using A Particular Key. After That For Every Re-Install Or Clean Install You Have To Call Them. However They Do Not Provide You WithA Fresh Key, So You Have To Call Them Everytime. I Hope I'm Wrong But I Think The Limit Is 6.....Just A Wild Assumption!
