    Hi

    Recently bought the win 7 ultimate upgrade from a local store. They young guy in the store assured me I could use the 64 bit disk on my main PC and the 32 bit on my laptop and be able to activate both. I stupidly listened to him and installed Win 7 on both but off course was only able to activate it once on my main PC.:mad:

    The upgrade on both m/c's went well and I am more than happy with the results. Does anyone know where I can legally buy the product key only so I can activate the OS on my laptop. I don't want to downgrade and then upgrade my OS on my laptop as I have some important info on it and it took 4 hours to upgrade,

    I have checked the MS stores etc but cant find an option just to buy the key, this must exist as the option to change your key is available on the OS

    Any help much appreciated

    TP

    Far as I recall when activation fails it should present you with a direct link to buy said serial from MS.

    I don't mean to sound insulting.. but finding product keys for sale is as easy as finding porn. First, they sell them right here on this website... second eBay has thousands for sale... third hot deals message forums have several threads that discuss deals for product keys.

    Forth... just install windows 7 and press enter at the product key screen and you get 30 days to get a key.

    Well ebay removed windows 7 keys for some copyright laws.
    So we cannot sell them anymore in ebay.

    Try this

    On the second machine use telephone activation at the prompt. When you call the computer will ask you to enter the series of numbers on the screen. It will then ask how many machines you activated already. Be honest and say 1. The computer will give you a string of numbers to enter on your screen and voila, you are activated. It worked fo me on 6 diffeent occassions for different customers
