    hi, i have bought a laptop that came with Windows Vista(original no hack), but when Windows 7 came out i made a second partition on my internal HDD and installed an illigal version of Windows 7 Enterprise on it. So i had a dualboot with Windows 7 and Windows Vista

    When i activated Windows 7 and booted up vista to see if vista still worked, it said that i had to active Windows Vista (it was activated before). so i did (via youtube) but when i booted Windows 7 up, Windows 7 said that i had to activate it but i just activated Windows 7.

    Simple version: i only can activate 1 OS, if i activate Windows 7, Windows Vista will be deactivated, if i activate Windows Vista, Windows 7 will be deactivated.

    any help ?
    BTW: please keep it simple i'm just a average computer user.

    You should not install that version of windows 7. Other versions can activate it via SLIC 2.1. Your version need KMS to activate.

    Also SLIC 2.1 is found on new BIOS. SO try your luck to update your BIOS to the latest.
