Re-Installed Windows Vista Home Premium from an OS Disk instead of the recovery disk on an emachine. No problem with activation, but 2-3 weeks later, getting the "Key is inavlid for activation" Tried all methods including slui3 and slui4, called Microsoft, they say the key is Valid, but they can't do anything about it, and to call Emachines. Emachines warranty is out, and they want to charge money.
My question is, What will emachine tell me that will validate the key? Using recovery disk is not an option!!!!
