Hi,A friend is having a problem activating Windows 7.Originally his laptop came with Vista installed but he couldn't get on with it so he had his hard drive wiped and had XP installed instead.He has now decided to put W7 on it so he bought a W7 upgrade disc and installed it.Apart from a few niggles everything seems to run ok.The problem is that he can't activate it. When he puts the activation key in a message comes up saying something like,Activation key invalid, this key can only be used for an upgrade installation and not for a clean install.Any help or suggestions gratefully received.Regards, Chris.
