    What now....I bought windows 7 family pack and my hard drive crashed on my apple cumputers virtual drive. The HD is being replaced. Do I need to contact microsoft for a different product Key? What do I need to do? :frown:

    HD Crash

    Thanks anyway for the file retriever...I did have the majority of stuff backed up. Windows was residing on a apple iMac virtual HD (VMFusion 3). thanks for the offer though!:eek:

    No, you can install and activate over and over and activate if you don't change the motherboard. If you replace the mb or bios you'll have to go though Microsoft

    by the way, was your drive a seagate 7200.11 ? It it is, then it got bricked. You'll know because your computer will hang at bootup trying to initialize. I know someone who can fix it.
