Windows Re-Activation

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by COMP Maintenance Class!, Apr 24, 2007.

  1. I am in computer maintenance at my school.. and we recently got 10 licenses
    to run Vista. The first day went well, but after rebooting each computer
    Vista popped up and said we need to Re-Activate. I just reloaded it and
    thought that might help. The next day, almost every person in my class with
    Vista on their computer had had that same thing happen. What do we do? We
    cant even have regular class anymore due to our computers not working! Please

    Computer maintenance class?

    Does that mean the students are disassembling - reassembling the hardware
    and possibly using different components during reassembly?

    If that description is accurate, the activities are probably causing the
    Vista activation robot to "sense" hardware changes and request reactivation.
    In that case you'll need to use telephone reactivation to explain the

    Given that Vista is more sensitive to environmental changes than previous
    versions, it may not have been a good choice (at this time) for computers in
    a maintenance classroom. Testing with one computer first would have revealed
    that. Can you use the licenses for the previously installed version (XP?),
    and revert to that for class activities?

    If my assumptions about the class are incorrect, please provide more
    detailed information on your setup and exactly how the computers are used.

    What is being done to these computers? If parts are being swapped around
    or major changes are being made during class, perhaps a Volume License might
    be the way to go.

    Another thought would be to not activate the machines at all, use the
    rearm technique and do a full OS reinstall each semester.
