    MAK key online activated can be restored, but retail key from msdn still fails though.

    But you have to provide the MAK, it isn't stored on the machine anywhere in retrievable form.

    Any help here? Typing in net stop sppsvc I'm getting "THE SOFTWARE PROTECTION SERVICE IS NOT STARTED" "More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3521" but it also said "The *** service is not started." I copy over the files but after reboot it is still not activated.
