    I've been checking the number of activation of this key for a while. It went down slowly, last few days I checked it was around 600+.
    I checked again last nite, it went back to 4000+. Not sure how it works though.

    I believe that HP bought more seats with that key. I believe that one activation takes one count unless you reinstalled and reactivate with the same pc hardware specs.

    yeah if you are legit VL customer you can get MS to increase the amount of activations on a key for you.

    Absolutely True.. This is the only logical explanation.. You can't tamper with MAKs and fake them, the soft verifies against Microsoft's server.. Apparently more activations have been purhcased.. What worries me most is blacklisting the key shortly. The key is currently literary all over the internet, and I spotted a request sent to M$ about it.. :rolleyes:

    All speulations.. days shall unveil.. ;)

    any leaked MAK key will be blocked for sure, it's just a matter of time.

    Let's hope this key is not blacklisted, like the FCKGW... key for the Corporate edition of Windows XP. A sneaky Win Update patch or a future Service Pack might do it.

    C'mon Microsoft, let this one slide. You must let piracy help you gain market share, eliminate the bad taste left behind by Vista, and combat Snow Leopard. The hardcore pirates will pirate software no matter how much you try to stop them, and most other users will have genuine Windows preloaded when a new system is purchased.

    Yeah somewhat they are slow, but on the other side, if i am not wrong, every few months you have to re-activate the win 7 installed with a mak, isn't that true ?

    Or just once it's installed it's done ?

    Yes from what I have been told if you use the key and it get block it is still good on your machine but wont work for new installs because big Companys dont want to change all the keys on the machines deployed already:confused::confused::confused: one time done kms every 6 month

    yea, it should still keep pc's that are activated still activated but you may not be able to activate new pc's with that key mate.

    One query.
    If I install win 7 enterprise, and activate with a MAK key. So far, so good.
    Now, I make a system image of that activated enterprise image for future reinstalls/insurance.
    Question:
    1. will it remain activated if restore from that activated sys. image.
    2. if I change the c drive size (say from 100GB to 80 or 130 or whatever) in the time between the image backup and image restore, what will happen.
