    I have installed Vista and the install runs fine until i get to the
    Activating Window part. I use the Activate online and yet it keeps giving me
    authentication failed error i have in the topic. I used Nero for the ISO
    burning. Any suggestion? I have tried to activate by online many times.
    Should I just keep trying?

    Thanx

    The 0x800705B4 error is related to a session timeout if I remember correctly.
    It occured in one of our labs when we where updating to WinXP a while back.
    It seemed the rotuer we had installed in the building had a firewall
    interfering with the Windowsupdate site. Check your settings to be sure.

    We had the same problems when we tried to update one of our labs to XP a
    while back. The firewall in the router by that side of campus was interfering
    with the Windowsupdate site. Check your settings and try again when the site
    isn't so busy.
