Vista Ultimate activation

  woodm01 21:47 27 Apr 2008

I have just built a new PC and installed Vista Ultimate OEM. However, once the system had been installed I discovered I had a duff motherboard, which is being returned to the shop tomorrow (Gigabyte).

I am exchanging this for an Asus P5K-Premium motherboard, but will I be okay to re-activate Vista ?

I had a same problem approx 12 months ago, a brief phonecall to Microsoft resulted in my OEM version being re-activated.

Talk nicely to the person on the other end of the phone and maybe you will get a similar result.

Sorted, many thanks :-)
