    The error message is

    Code: 0xC004c020
    Description: " The activation server reported that the multiple activation
    key has exceeded its limit."

  3. Well Vijay,

    it seems that your MAK key was used more than allowed number of activations.
    If you think that you are entitled for more activations, you may use the
    free phone that is listed on the activation dialog box.

    If you would like to avoid similar messages in the future, I would suggest
    that you use Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) and "Proxy Activation"
    procedure. This procedure allows you to save your MAK key, Installation Id
    an Confirmation Id in an XML file. When you reinstall your system on the
    same hardware, you can apply all three pieces of information using VAMT tool
    and your system will be (re)activated without contacting Microsoft.
