    I installed this ~a month ago with the modded bios (Asus) for my ASRock 939Dual and it activated properly - Genuine Windows. A couple days ago my drive order was changed after I added my backup installation to the boot menu and it apparently became unactivated, along with my backup installation. I went through the activation procedure with my backup system and it reactivated fine but my main system will not reactivate. I've went through this a few times to no avail:

    I've removed the keys with slmgr -cpky and slmgr -upk too but it made no difference.

    Oddly, when I check with MGADiag, it sez that my system is Genuine but I still have the 15 days for activation in System properties.

    Anyone have an idea what's wrong?

    BIOS Mod Fail

    Aren't these part of a crack? Might be good idea to
    verify they are genuine MS.

    I don't even have those files on my computer. Aren't they for XP only?

    I have it on another hard drive. It worked fine for a few weeks. It just became unactivated a few days ago.
