    A friend gave me the above laptop to format so I used the tool to save the key and cert but like the idiot that I am I got a bit trigger happy with the mouse and managed to copy over the backup with my key and cert from my laptop :mad:

    I've seen this thread and have tried installing the cert and then various keys but its still not activated.

    Can anyone make any suggestions as to what im doing wrong?

    Many thanks

    Can anybody help a total novice here

    I have done this thing before on a Fujitsu but now I have an advent 9315 which should be running vista premium. Can anybody please guide me to activating this using a generic vista oem?
    Thanks, Richard
